How does one get better at painting clouds? Well, that was the question I had at the beginning of this week. I admire Sergej Temerev a lot so really it’s not that difficult. I just looked at as many watercolours of his as possible, there is a good Pinterest page featuring his work, here’s the link. I also looked at all the YouTube videos I could find. I’ve done this before but one has to repeat and practice a lot if one wants to get better.
This is from my fantasy but I have a clear picture in my head of the beautiful evenings in the Stockholm archipelago. It’s like magic when the high pressure system is stationed above and evening comes. Waves and stress disappear and all one can do is open a beer and view with amazement until the mosquitoes remind you it’s time for bed.
My Mother in law’s house is by the sea, it is a beautiful place. The view from the garden is panoramic, here I chose to paint the view of Paimpol town which is a few kilometres across the tidal bay. I actually painted this on the very first day of the visit (2017o619) but have only it published now.
