What a difference it makes whether your landscape painting features a sky shimmering with golden sunlight, the glowering darkness of a gathering storm, a lazy haze, or a mysterious fog. Now an expert painter and teacher shows you how to turn this too-often neglected aspect into the personality of your painting. Learn the techniques of painting different kinds of clouds so you can make cumulus skies look like pieces of cotton with a spotlight above and a shadow beneath. You learn to create perspective so that clouds loom large in the foreground and recede into the background; how to graduate a clear blue sky and bring it interest and expression; how skies can express the seasons, the weather, the time of day. Get tips on how to start your own collection of photographs of the sky and use it for reference.
