Watercolour sky studies can be enormously satisfying to paint. One of the best things about painting in watercolour is the element of happy accident – of the pigments creating their own unexpected effects. Perfect for painting loose skies.
Wonderful dramatic skies can be created using a combination of wet underpainting, with judiciously placed dry brushwork in a second layer once the first layer is properly dry.
Painting Watercolour Sky:
– Keep it loose
– There’s more than one way to paint skies.
