For The Artist And The Weather Watcher…

For both the Artist and the Weather Watcher, clouds are a tricky conglomeration of elements that can be quick to be admired but seriously difficult to master defining. Especially on canvas it is difficult to capture the moods of the skyscape in a way that looks realistic. On our way home from our 2017 Easter break in Zeeland, we spied enough different cloud formations to make use wonder what on earth Mother Nature was up to. I think that with everything people have been doing to the planet, she is very rightly confused. Here as we drove, the clouds were bright, white, grey or black, there were even patches of blue skies in-between. We didn’t know if we were running into bad weather or away from it, or if it was passing us in a horizontal fashion and we just had to pass through it. These images are for my arty Reference files, and saved… to the cloud.

Cars in all shapes and paintworks…

I usually carry my camera with me whenever I am out and about. I like to take photos of anything that catches my eye.  Now Hubby is certainly the Car Fan in the family, and he would be the one to tell you what these cars are, the makes and models etc. Me, I just go on colour, shape and anything that catches my eye.

Here is one that is very strangely angular… only a car that the designer could love?
