As Quito is situated at about 10,000 feet above sea level, it's quite close to the clouds. Since the rainy season started (September-May), the clouds have been amazing. About once a day, I see some clouds I'm compelled to take a picture of. Since I'm fascinated by the clouds here, I decided to do my next painting on the clouds. I thought it was going to be easy. I was wrong.
As you can see, this was difficult. I think it takes a lot of skill (that I don't have) to paint clouds well, and my color palette was very limited. So, I included the inspiration pictures to show what I was trying to depict, because they are incredibly beautiful pictures.
