Watecolor lesson - how to paint clouds:
Now that the frisket has been removed, we have a nice cloud shape, but the edges are hard. Most cloud edges are soft and fuzzy. Let's go in and soften them up.
Take a paintbrush and dip it in water. Squeeze most of the liquid out of the brush, then scrub along the cloud edge.
This is my watercolor palette. There are many sizes. I prefer large. My colors are dark blue, sky blue, yellow ochre and grey. The middle area is where I mix them.
We're adding wet paint to a dry area. This technique (surprise, surprise) is called 'Wet on Dry' painting.
