In this lesson, "How to Paint Clouds in Acrylic using a Round Brush", Ginger shows you basic skills that are very important for painting clouds either in landscapes, seascapes, or other scenes. This is an older lesson that we do not have a reference photo.
This is a "basic" skill that we feel all members of the Academy need to know how to paint. Even if you never paint landscapes or flowers, that will be something that you will learn and be able to use what you learn in other paintings.
The "How to Paint Clouds in Acrylic Using a Round Brush" is painted on a 6"x8" stretched canvas using Ginger's standard palette of colors.
See "Supplies Needed" below.
This is an "Introductory Level" or what used to be known as a "1-Cookie" lesson.
