Sakura trees – part 2 – painting sky with clouds

After client’s approval I ordered canvas and paints and prepared place to paint. I couldn’t find prepared canvas in size exactly the same as they wanted so I bought little bigger and marked by masking tape necessary size. I could do that because I knew when I end this painting we will relocate it into new frame already installed in client’s home.

This is how it looked. Area between masking tape will be painted.

Next I started painting. I always start from top to bottom, so at first I decided to paint sky with cloud. At the beginning I painted blue sky and left unpainted places for clouds. When sky dried (and it dried fast because it is acrylic), I painted clouds. Effect you can see below:

I think clouds are pretty cool. Next I put first layer under grass and forests hills.

To be continued…
