Good, some more clouds!:)

IMO, the big cloud in the upper left (our left) needs some soft modeling. The dark part at the bottom is hard and harsh looking. If you could soften that line, then put some really soft shadows in the white part of the cloud, that should do it. I know you have some already there, but they are not enough to model.

I am not a cumulo-nimbologist but this second photo
seems much more cloudy than the first one.

Do you damp enough the part you want to paint before to add a new color ?
I am not a lanscape painter.
I prefer to damp to much and then suck the water, than the reverse when I have a sky to paint.
I think it is much easier for oil painter

Yes i added, more color cause i think it needed it i just did that way i suck the water from a PaperTowel then blow Dry, nothing against Oil Painters i like The Feel of Watercolor over any of the Medium , cause i have painted in watercolor longer and staying with just watercolor thankyou for your Comment,

I like your perspective here...the idea of looking up at the clouds instead of across the landscape at them. I feel I'm right there. The many colors in your clouds add to their interest too. And I do like those plants! I guess I like it all!

I missed this first time round... Beautiful sky (as always). The additional colour really finished it off... I love the looseness of your work:clap:

The shapes and colour are definitely there. I think a few soft edges around the clouds may help it further.

Art - have been struggling with a cumulous sky - to no avail! But...your painting gave me several thoughts and possible avenues to take.

Thanks!!
