Cloud and Tree Sketch

cloud & tree sketch - watercolor

Just a happy sketch of what summer should be; perfect temperatures, puffy clouds, and a healthy green tree.
This sketch was completely made up. I had some extra time but was tired of the same trees I have been sketching by work…so I made this one up!Β  The shape of the tree reminds me of the shape of the clouds. One note on painting clouds, they are not just white. Clouds, like snow, have a variety of color in them (yellow, pink, blue, purple, and gray). I try to add a touch of color to each cloud. Today I added pink and gray.

I love the different colors and shapes of clouds.

  2. Barb: I can’t wait to see your clouds! Aren’t they so much fun to study? Let me know if you post about a cloud painting so I can update my post and include your link πŸ™‚

  3. The tone of this post reminds me of Bob Ross & his “happy little trees.” I mean that as a compliment, btw. πŸ™‚
