Make Your Own Cloud Studies

blue sky with white fluffy clouds over Australian bush

Cloud Study, Orange, NSW

Inspired by the art of Constable and Cozens I spent some time this afternoon observing the sky and clouds over the local landscape. The sun is shining today after a very wet week and, as it is also the school holidays, many other families had also headed for the hills. While they enjoyed the cooler mountain air and views over the orchards, my gaze was drawn upwards. The big sky is one of the things I miss about Australia – as a country girl I grew up being able to see clear to the horizon with a huge expanse of blue sky overhead. The landscapes of Constable and Cozens prove that you can get vast, dramatic skies in the UK too, but living in the city the sky is not a dominant feature and I often forget to look up.  What sort of sky and clouds do you have over head today?
