Painting A Sky With Wispy Cirrus Clouds & Snow-Capped Mountains
Step 3: Painting Wispy Skies Using The “Wet-In-Wet” Technique
With the size 12 brush, prepare a mixture of Cerulean and Cobalt Blue on the palette, testing the color on a piece of scrap paper before painting the sky. Start from the top, being careful to avoid the clouds. As the paper is wet before painting, the paint will spread more and create soft edges around the clouds. If at any moment the paper dries out and the paint starts producing hard edges, use the size 8 brush and clean water to soften the edges were the sky meets the clouds. You can also use the paper towel and dab at areas that are too wet, or where the paint has spread too much into the clouds.
