About the project

Sketching Clouds In Oils


Artist – Nial W. Adams – 2015

Medium – Oil on Canvas

Size – 24″ x 18″ Landscape

Description –

Sometimes you just need to let go, let the mind wander and see where it takes you.

From time to time I like to take the opportunity to ‘free paint’ with no particular theme or composition in mind. This is sketching clouds in oils.

I like to work the canvas quickly, with a restricted palette of core colours, and let the painting happen naturally. As skies and clouds form a big part of my personal inspiration this painting will be no surprise.

I’ve tried to capture the blustery and fresh feeling of an Autumn day by the North Norfolk coast. Skies racing, light chasing shadows and warm colours beaming through clouds.

This painting is very much a sketch but it’s size and freshness presents an informal composition ideal for hanging, bringing the outdoors, indoors.


Framing –

The painting is offered unframed. Framing options can be arranged depending upon your tastes and desires
