Cloud revision

Ireland 7×14 watercolour

Though some of the white space has disappeared, I feel these clouds are stylistically more in line with the realism of the beach compared to my last post. It’s very easy to overwork clouds and I am almost never satisfied with my first versions. Another layer likely wouldn’t be prudent. It’s time to leave this and move on.

  1. I think that this has a more believable look to it and there are some lost edges and you’ve broken up the masses as well. Perhaps it is also the shape of the tops of the clouds. I have come a cropper a few times by copying what is there, but on the paper it just doesnt look right. That is where artistic license is valid, getting something to look natural when it isnt what you saw.
