OIL PAINTINGS OF CLOUDS 2 Oil Paintings of Clouds As the curator of the museum I have been asked to create an interactive timeline based upon one art medium to improve the content of the museum website. With the criteria they have asked for on the interactive timeline I have decided on basing the timeline on paintings of clouds, I will focus the timeline on a margin of historic art that has managed to stay true to traditional artwork, while opening individuals eyes to a more open artistic surrounding. Throughout time artwork has evolved and changed with each century it has been proposed with and with each generation of people. The Interactive timeline will take place in the late 1500’s thru the 1900’s. I feel this medium is a great idea for our museum, people will be able to look up our website and able to look at these new works of art and relax just looking at them. They will also see that there is more to painting then just portraits and landscape. These paintings of clouds are relaxing and calming to look at and get lost in.

The way the artist exhausted the space of the canvas was executed very well, he also used three dimensional painting so you can see the detail of the rocks or the detail of the clouds, also he used single line to show distance in his painting. “The Four Seasons of Winter” (1824) William Beard The colors of this painting remind me of night time of course, but to see the clouds surrounding this man and the owls is insane, it makes him look as though he is flying in the air. The atmospheric perspective to me is dreary, dark and looks as though he is in a storm. This
