Moleskine Monday - Up In the Clouds



I am on a quest to paint clouds.



My simple approach is to paint the background, let it dry and then use white for the clouds.


Paintings don't aways turn out the way I want but I learn something new each time.


The stars above were painted with a paint brush and the ones below were splattered with watered down acrylic paint.  I prefer the splatters.


I have pinned a bunch of clouds here. Take a look if you need reference photos!


I plan to do more very soon.  Click here to see more of my Moleskine.
