Skye Blue Sky, original oil painting clouds box canvas


Request a custom order and have something made just for you.


This is an original oil painting of rolling clouds over a shimmering blue sky, painted on a small box canvas that's ready to hang. It's based on a sketch I made whilst on the Isle of Skye, hence the title, and the painting extends over the sides of the canvas.

For this painting, I first painted the blue sky, using oil paint mixed with linseed oil to produce a very glossy finish, brushstrokes blending together to give the impression of light streaming diagonally down from above. Once this had dried (the large amount of linseed oil meant this stayed wet for weeks!) I was able to work on the clouds, making use of layers of paint to produce texture and accentuate the contrast between clouds and sky. Although the scale of the artwork is small, many hours have gone into getting it just right, especially building-up and blending the thick layers of paint in the clouds.

It's a lovely finished piece, particularly well suited for hanging up somewhere far from blue skies (office cubicle, perhaps?) or for giving as a gift.
