View all copies of this ISBN edition:

For many artists who paint the world around them, the sky is one of the most important factors in their work. Light eminates from the sky and so this sets the tone and the overall colour of the rest of the painting. The sky can also set the temperature and the mood of a painting. Clouds too can dominate or complement the composition. This pocket guide offers a step-by-step approach to painting sky. Working from examples of the various celestial conditions which a painter can be faced with, the book assembles a variety of techniques and approaches for the reader to work through. Demonstrations across all media show how to achieve realistic, lively clouds and light effects. Suggestions are given for colour palettes from sunrise to sunset along with tips on classic painting techniques for skyscapes.
