Grey Sky F-J - Five Works in Progress

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.

Grey Sky F

For the first one I used almost equal parts of French ultramarine blue with burnt sienna and washed the sky in for a pale neutral grey.

Grey Sky G

Adding a little more burnt sienna to the grey mixture I made a warm grey and used this colour on the next four paintings.

Grey Sky H

I did some pieces vertically using different washes of the grey mixture and painting it in with streaks of colour. Lighter and darker mixtures of the two colours were used to give different tones to the skies.

Grey Sky I

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

Grey Sky J
