Blue Sky A-F - Six Works in Progress

Blue Sky A

Today I decided to cut up some watercolour paper in the size of 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" for ACEO. Once I had cut a dozen pieces to size it was time to start painting.

Blue Sky B

Using mixtures of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I painted in skies and clouds and into one I added a little raw sienna and added a few tree shapes into the bottom of one painting.

Blue Sky C

Some of the backgrounds had very little cloud and were almost clear blue sky. Lighter and darker mixtures of the two colours were used to give different tones to the skies.

Blue Sky D

I will posts these backgrounds sky paintings as I complete them at a later date.

Blue Sky E
