Oil Painting LessonIn this lesson we learn how to paint clouds.Items needed for how to paint clouds: 1" flat brush, dry 1" brush, soft mop brush, canvas, white paint, Prussian Blue or a dark blue paint, odorless paint thinner.
Here's the completed painting for reference. The sky area will be this lesson.
First spray the sky area lightly with odorless paint thinner. Start painting the sky area all white. Using the dark blue paint dab and twist the brush all across the sky area leaving some white showing.
While paint is still wet using the dry brush swipe across all of the area lightly until it starts looking like this:
Keep going back and forth until it all starts to blend and looks light a light cloudy day :) As we continue to learn how to paint clouds take the wet brush and dab white paint along the edges of the clouds in order to give depth to the clouds. See picture below.
Now take the soft mop brush and lightly blend the clouds by smoothing some of the edges. This will be up to you to mop brush areas until it looks the way you want it to look. You can brush at an upwards angle in some areas. It will look something like this picture.
Optional: Lastly add more white edges if needed with the flat brush for depth and end with the mop brush for any added blending that you may want.
This completes How To Paint Clouds.
