L'Arte dal Cielo

       

Some of our members and visitors have sent in their paintings and drawings of clouds and we are very pleased to be able to put them up for others to enjoy.
     John Constable (1776-1837), the English landscape painter, said that the sky was the ‘chief organ of sentiment’ in his paintings. He become so obsessed with the clouds that, for a period in 1821 and 1822, he did away with the ground all together and devoted himself exclusively to painting cloud studies. What a clever fellow.
     Leonardo Da Vinci described the clouds as ‘bodies without surface’ and they are a challenging subject for any artist, especially given that they never sit still for a portrait.
