Paint Towering Summer Evening Clouds

The look of the summer sky changes through out the day. Often, on hot and humid days, cumulus clouds have built up  to the point that they are towering over the landscape. These tall clouds catch the rays of light from the setting sun in dramatic ways.  In this watercolor painting lesson, we focus on the methods and techniques that will help you paint these clouds successfully.

Drawing Layout For Any Painting

One note on the drawing layout. The downloadable layouts are done with heavy lines to make it easy to see and copy onto your watercolor paper. It is best not to draw the lines too heavy on your paper, especially in the sky, since there is a good chance the lines will show through the paint. It’s not a deal-breaker, but those heavy pencil lines are sometimes a distraction.
