WC: Skies and Lifting Color
Practicing painting skies and clouds has become one of my favorite things. Mostly, I use the wet-on-wet technique and then drop in other colors/shades as it dries. I often lift off areas to create more lights and darks, although some of the light areas are from leaving white paper in the beginning. Lifting out color with a damp brush or tissue is also a great way to create mist or fog, which I do on the final sheet.
There’s a big mistake on the first sheet (bottom left) where I blotted out everything but forgot to try to paint over. The paint stained the background and I thought it would make a cool, stormy sky. I’ll try it later.
