I'm looking for some cloud demos or tutorials.... if anyone can point me in the right direction. I'm working on a landscape right now... and although I think these are the best clouds that I personally have done I strongly admit that there is room for improvement. (always right)

:wave: With our heads in the clouds!

:music: I've looked at clouds from both sides now!:music:

On a recent plane flight, I spent some time with my camera shooting pix of various cloud shapes as we flew over them, through them and underthem.
I really had a chance to think about them, shapes etc. up close and sort of personal.

Then I did some on-line searching about weather and clouds etc. and turned up many bits of information about clouds, related weather and found some excellent photos to study.

When was the last time you sprawled out on the grass in your yard and watched clouds? Play the old childhood game of naming the shapes you see. Come on...be a kid again!

Then pack up your pastels and paper and go "en plein air" painting!
