A new Mini-Demo on painting a watercolor sky

When I want an interesting watercolor sky, when, say, the landscape below is not so dynamic, here’s a sky that works for me.

The basic technique is that I wet the sky area of my watercolor paper.  But while doing so I am careful to leave so small areas of dry paper alone, untouched by the water.  So when I “scrub” on my sky color around the tops and bottoms of the clouds, I get some dry-brushed, rough or ragged edges here and there.

Here is the video.  It’s a little over 8 minutes long…
