Hints and Tips for Painting Skies

Painting clouds with acrylics

In this article by artist Rosemary Hale, she offers many tips and hints for painting skies and realistic clouds using acrylic paints.   Hale writes:  "... a sky’s mood and atmosphere will influence the colours and tones of the landscape below, and this should be taken into account when planning a picture......It is important to give a sky the vaporous, atmospheric character that clouds possess and it is the edge of a cloud that most puts this across. An unbroken hard edge against the sky colour will look like a cartoon, whereas a soft edged cloud immediately becomes more vaporous and believable."
