"Painting clouds is a passion of mine. I find them endlessly compelling. It’s hard to capture them in a painting en plein air, but I have an 18 x 24 gray sketchpad that I take out and do quick studies of the moving clouds in charcoal and white chalk, just to study their nuances. This muscle memory comes into play when I do a large studio piece such as this one."
