My Watercolour Journey – Sky And Clouds

I have been trying to master some basic techniques of conveying sky and clouds in watercolour… I googled for tutorials and followed a couple of them. It looked so easy! In one, the artist had a complete painting done in the 5 minutes 46 seconds of the video – she did use a hairdryer to dry it off at one point, but even so, it was completed within the timeframe!

After a bit of practice I had some okay results, and a lot of learning under my belt. I added the main picture afterwards, which was a whole other journey….

Here, I also experimented with painting water…

I was wanting to play with light and light reflections here too…
