The sky’s ever-changing moods have long challenged painters in watercolor. Discover techniques to capture the sky, whether filled with wispy cirrus clouds or dramatic cumulus clouds.
Learn to mingle colors and take advantage of wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry techniques to create colorful, captivating skies. Learn how to infuse clouds with subtle colors using natural organic shapes and experiment with lost-and-found edges.
Each painting features a dominant sky and minimal landscapes to give perspective.
