Discover this easy watercolour painting technique to make a heavy, rainy, gray sky. Perfect to describe coastal, stormy weather.


Extra tips:

  • Vary the pre-wetted area to make different landscape forms beneath the sky.
  • Preserve the light: Make sure to preserve light areas, as this makes the sky more interesting.
  • You can also try this technique to make stormy waves, but be aware that is a bit more difficult to get the wanted result.
