Stick-on Clouds

I had several comments from people at the studio  suggesting that I should leave the sky as it is because it looks beautifully warm and sunny and the blending had been well-executed. I agreed that it’s even simplicity worked well in contrast to the more detailed sea but the intention has always been to feature clouds in the sky. Somehow I felt it would only be half a painting without the clouds.

To experiment, I had fun painting and cutting out some (slightly comical) clouds to literally ‘stick on’ the painting. I reckon the experiment proved my point well:

The seascape with detachable clouds.

At this stage I painted some clouds and stuck them on! I like the simplicity of the shapes against the perfect sky. Perhaps I’m on to something here… supply detachable clouds with paintings so that people can change the scene according to their mood.
