Cloudporn Is A Thing

The new hashtag you should be following? #Cloudporn

INSTAGRAM IS CHOCK-FULL of great travel photos. Even to the extent that there's so much that it can be hard to know exactly where to start. There are a number of great hashtags to start following, but my new personal favorite is #CloudPorn. It's exactly what it sounds like: amazing photos featuring amazing clouds.

I love photos of clouds, but learning how to paint them is a whole other thing. I have tried in the past with little success. It was only this year that I felt encouraged after painting a stone for my radiation series and decided to give it another shot.
 So today a friend and I spent an afternoon practicing painting clouds on some old posterboard panels. 
Not brilliant, but not bad either. I just used white, black and ultramarine blue for this session. I really like this video and may give it a go using the colours and not doing such hard edges.
thanks to Nagualero for the great video
