Discover this easy watercolour painting technique to make a heavy, rainy, gray sky. Perfect to describe coastal, stormy weather.
- Vary the pre-wetted area to make different landscape forms beneath the sky.

- You can also try this technique to make stormy waves, but be aware that is a bit more difficult to get the wanted result.
