Up in the sky

There have certainly been enough clouds around recently to fill a whole book with them .

This is from a sketchbook and I was trying to capture what I could see of the main clouds. Although there are some hard edges where I don’t want them, I was quite pleased with the way the clouds worked out. I used mostly yellow ochre, French ultramarine and Burnt Sienna in the clouds and Cobalt Blue for the sky itself. I simplified the row of trees and buildings lots just to give a bit of context.

I have a feeling there will be a lot of opportunities to practice more clouds in the near future!
