Sometimes I really don't like the way the skies look when I am done with them like this one!!!
This sky had a lot of puffy white clouds in it against a bright blue sky. I washed the paper with water. Then using Cobalt blue I washed around the cloud areas. I added cerulean and yellow ocher for the greys. And some purple.
So how to fix it??
I used a white inktense bar of color similar to a pastel to brighten the sky up a bit. As long as you don't wet it it stays transparent. I like it alot better now!!
I did the same thing with this sky. And I really like the way this one turned out!!!
