Painting clouds is not as difficult as it might appear. Like everything else in painting there is a method to painting clouds. In this art tutorial video we shall paint clouds using student quality acrylic paint. This type of paint is widely available in schools, colleges and most art stores. There are a number of ideas and skills required before painting clouds will be effective. Firstly, clouds have a structure which you need to understand. Secondly, where is the sun, the source of light? It is important to know where the sun is in the sky even if you can’t see it because it will determine where the shadows are.
Once theses elements are understood the art tutorial explains the range of colours to be used and the method of applying the paint. Painting clouds can be given an added flourish by the way the paint is applied, by twisting the brush for example.

Are you an Artist?
At Paul Priestley’s Art World, we believe being an artist is a twofold process. It’s a combination between skills, techniques, creativity and the ability to see things in a way others often can’t. Some people become obsessed with learning the techniques of sketching, drawing and painting, but that only takes you so far.
Remember obtaining the best materials you can afford will not make you a better artist. What you do with the materials is the important issue. Paul Gauguin painted on sacking, not premium canvas. Passion, the creativity to experiment and make mistakes is far more important.
You will become an artist if …
You remember that no one in the world draws and paints like you do. Be proud of the fact. As an artist seek an individual vision, don’t let anyone say you haven’t got that. Or tell you that your art work is not relevant or good enough – what do they know!
Paul Priestley art tutorials are taught with lots of passion, creativity and with a simple step by step approach to drawing that will inspire everyone. Our art tutorials will help you create your individual vision and hopefully, will help you become the artist you have always wanted to be. I sincerely hope so.
