Aquarelle Tuesdays 2 - 4.30pm with Marina

A nice set of clouds by Anna-Karin 

Last Tuesday we had an old fashioned 'class'... With the help of several youtube movies (just google "How to paint clouds with watercolours") we managed an impressive number of great clouds - check some of 'em out here:
(and forgive me if I get the names wrong: they're all equally good, I couldn't really recognise the styles...)

Clouds & birds also by Anna-Karin

 Brenda's set with different weather types - very expressive!

 Happy Caribbean summerclouds by Cathie



 Liz' clouds over a misty village

Nusch's set of clouds, much improved! well done...

Basic tricks: Wet your paper to get the colours flowing, make enough paint before you start, (just the primaries are necessary) make it darker than you think it should be (as it dries up lighter) and use kitchenpaper or a dry flat brush for the cloud shapes. Lots of variations and additions are of course possible!
