Cloud Project 
'Soft, glowing diffuse evening light'

                                                     Port Art Studios


This project is about getting the subtle soft blended tonal variations required to show subtle diffuse glowing light coming through clouds (in acrylic paint). The brush techniques for achieving this effect are quite different in oils and different again in watercolours. With acrylics, three or more thin carefully blended layers get the best results.

This 7 step project (this photo is a possible reference or you can choose your own and use the same step by step approaches) shows you how to build up a soft glowing evening sky using acrylic on canvas. At the end, there is also a bonus class extension, showing a contemporary oil painting approach to the same scene.
