Effective Skies watercolour
Effective Skies has always been one of the most popular classes in my teaching programme. In these classes I show how a student can achieve a most effective and stunning result in a few moments. Using a limited palette, a big brush and of course the wet-on-wet technique.
Learning to paint skies is a must for anyone interested in painting scenery. The sky can sometimes take up two thirds of the entire composition so they need to look effective.
