Sky I & II
Both, watercolor paper, 5" x 7" no sketch, watercolor paint. Oct. 1 & 2, 2012.
I got a new book called "Skies, Light & Atmosphere, in watercolor" by David Bellamy. It is a wonderful intro to painting skies, clouds, shadows and backgrounds. My first few came out good, but don't quiet know what to do with the foreground yet. It is all wet on wet. The scanner is not picking up the subtle colors very well. I think anything goes as far as skies, it is mostly from your imagination, unless you really want to try to reproduce a photo, or are on location. I was just trying for different lighting.
