Painting Watercolor Sky and Clouds

Painting Watercolor Sky and Clouds - student project


 I am always taking pictures of clouds and this class motivated me to paint some of them. I worked my way through all the lessons painting along with Julia while watching the videos. I had the most difficult time with the last 3 videos and the added colors so I decided to tackle 
multicolored clouds as my project. It took multiple attempts to produce a painting to share. I had many failures but I learned something with each one. I definitely need to work on my gradient washes. The Rainy Weather Clouds tutorial painting is my favorite as I used Daniel Smith Primatek granulating paint in the dark area and it sparkles.
