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…
Any comments or questions?
