The changing moods and wonders of the sky are treasures that we want to keep, be it using memory, camera or paint.

Their speed of alteration, subtleties and nuances of hue and tone challenge us whatever tools we try. Here Marc has succeeded in portraying the colours and forms of Dutch skies and their spirit and essence.

The passage of visual impressions from eye through brain to hands and canvas help us to observe closely and experience deeply. Painting is not essential though. Not always but on occasions, lock away the camera and instead just look at the skies. Let them steep the mind.
