“When doing such landscape paintings, I look at them as a whole composition. I start off by roughly putting in the shapes I see with light colours and then move on to smaller brushes and painting in the details using oil paints straight from the tube.” Most of Ahmad Nazri Abdullah’s works consist of landscapes painted plein air. Clouds have always interested the artist, and it all started while he was taking a walk and photographing sunset that he truly found the inspiration for his masterpieces. The artist also finds himself feeling more at home in Asian countries like Malaysia, where he has spent about two-thirds of his life, and his adoration for this country is seen in this piece of the Selayang landscape.
