New cloudscape painting WIP

Cumulus clouds

Cumulus clouds sketch

Hi everyone , I`ve just started working on a cloudscape painting and I want to share it here as it progresses, with you all. Here is the rough sketch that I`ve going for now, looking at the overall design and for the underlying rhythms in the forms. It`s based on a photograph that I had taken at midday lighting conditions in the Netherlands some time back. The viewpoint is high overlooking the entire city but the structures looked too busy, so I`ve left in only a thin strip of land showing to bring home the contrast between the huge cloud formation and the tiny buildings and canals. It had started forming within minutes before our very eyes and the day transformed suddenly from bright and sunny to heavy downpour but not before leaving me with beautiful pictures!
