Look for Less: Studio McGee Cloud Landscape Artwork

Studio McGee cloud formation artwork - this painting on Joss & Main looks so similar!
While browsing Pinterest for landscape art ideas (I've been thinking about picking up a paintbrush myself, so I was looking for inspiration), two almost identical paintings popped up featuring dense cumulonimbus cloud formations over a simple neutral landscape, painted in broad, impressionistic brushstrokes. At first I thought they were the same piece, but after clicking through I discovered one was a piece of made-to-order artwork from Studio McGee for $960, while the other was a print available as a wrapped canvas or framed print from Joss & Main for just $42 to $133 (depending on the size).

I am really drawn to this style of artwork lately and I think many others are, too, considering the popularity of Studio McGee (they even have a line at Target!!) I think we are all looking for calming images and landscapes are always a popular option for that purpose. With any style of art, there are definite trends, and right now landscapes with a distinct horizon line, and minimal muted colors are among the most popular. I'm absolutely loving this look especially because it seems to mirror the skies I see right in my own backyard here in Connecticut. If I try to create one myself, I'll definitely let you know via Instagram!

THE LOOK: Feathered Clouds, $960 at Studio McGee

FOR LESS: Cloud Formation, $42-$133 at Joss & Main (also love this framed set for $62)

Good find & reminder to search deals!
