The sky has been a constant motif of representation throughout the history of art. Essential component in the composition of any work. Its versatility and changeable state in shapes and colors makes it one of the fans with the greatest possibilities that natural can offer us. Whether our landscape is urban, rural, marine or crowned by mountains in each and every one of our works, the sky must be present and working on it from nature is not only a clear commitment to analyzing it in the most exhaustive way possible but also the best way of capturing its relationship with the sun and the changing clouds that draw it.
