The Dutch painters loved painting skies. They painted it in all its variety.
The skies in the pictures of famous Dutch painters like Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Gogh inspired me to make this book with Dutch skies.
I have tried to capture the famous Dutch skies in various landscapes and cities. I have tried to give an impression of this part of nature with a modern "tool" such as photography.
