Turbulent skyPosted: June 3, 2017
This is the perfect week for sketching clouds. It’s an activity that’s a good distraction from being depressed about why the warm weather hasn’t arrived in Montreal yet. The best place to see this turbulent sky is near Lac St. Louis, if you can find a spot where the high water line has gone down a little. When I paint these big skies I always add a little warmth near the horizon line, usually with a diluted wash of Raw Sienna, and my starter mix for the clouds is Cerulean Blue with the tiniest dab of Alizarin Crimson. Sketched from my car, in the rain, in a Handbook Travelogue Watercolour journal, 16″ x 8″.
