Cloudscapes (Cloud Landscapes) from Above

Ever since my first flight at the age of 4, I am excited about flying and admiring cloud landscapes through the window of the plane. Since then not much has changed; it is fascinating to me how just the elements of water, particles and wind can combine to create so many different shapes. Every time I fly I am mesmerized watching cloud formations from above, especially when they overlap each other to form landscapes with interesting patterns and textures.

During a flight my favourite moment has to be when the plane breaks through the clouds. On rainy or snowy days, the clouds divide two different worlds; above, the sun is shining in a bright blue sky while below, everything is overshadowed with dark greys. I can’t help but look now and then out the plane’s window to admire this striking contrast.

During one of my last trips, I started taking some pictures of some interesting cloud formations. At this point, I am not sure how I will incorporate the material in my paintings yet, but I am already working on a few concepts. In the meantime, I thought I would share with you some of the scenes I captured.

As stated in my art goals for 2017, I planned to create my own YouTube channel, which I finally did: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdnZ-_oy9JyhZ0V4jD6SRug. Below you will find a time-lapse of a landing in Newark, NJ showing a breathtaking view of New York City.

For my next post, stay tuned for a new set of intuitive paintings in which I experimented with Acrylics and China ink.

    I love looking at the clouds! It’s such amazing view. I love it from an airplane. But I’ve also seen beautiful cloud views in the mountains in the Pyrenees. These are beautiful cloud landscapes!

    I also love looking out the clouds and even take some photos of it, because its beauty is so unique every minute! You can be a cloudstagrammer :)

    I don’t travel by plane that much, but when I have the chance to fly, I also avoid napping or reading or doing whatever else, and I rather choose looking through the window (if I am in a position to look through it). Yes, the contrast is just unforgettable. And the photos are excellent, too.

    These are absolutely stunning! The best thing about cloud photography is you can never recreate it again. Like finger prints, each clouds are unique.
