John Constable, cloud studies.
In 1821 and 1822, during his intense “skying” period, John Constable produced dozens of watercolour, crayon, and oil studies of the clouds over Hampstead Heath . His cloud studies—celebrated today—were not exhibited in his lifetime. Painted rapidly, wet-in-wet, Constable used short strokes and a restricted colour palette to train his hand and eye, and to enhance the realism of his later paintings. He labeled almost all of these images with scientific precision, indicating the date, time, wind, and weather conditions under which they were painted. Yet his ultimate goal was to paint the sky—which he deemed landscape’s “chief organ of sentiment”—more expressively. Indeed, landscapes from the time of his wife’s death feature dark, turbulent skies that carry the brunt of the works’ emotional weight.

Politicians are cruel Dickensian protagonists but without the redemption, a PSA.
