A Quick and Easy Way To Create Clouds

This watercolor painting lesson shows you a very common, quick and easy way to put clouds in the sky. We’ll use this easy technique and then modify it a bit to make great looking realistic clouds.

This is a quick and easy way to put clouds in your sky.  The video shows the combination of two techniques. One is a commonly taught technique that uses tissues to lift color out of a wet passage. We’ll enhance that technique with a little bit of dry-in-wet work that will add dimension and some drama to the tissue created clouds.

The drawing for this exercise is really quite easy so no drawing layout with this one.
