Barbara Kohn – How Do I Paint Clouds

Critique Submitted: March 27th 09:21PM

Clouds have always seemed difficult because they seem really busy to me and I lose my way sometimes. I am ok with the first two, I think. I tried not to blend too much but i found it necessary in some areas. That is just the nature of clouds!

The third painting is a picture I took from a cruise ship balcony at night which is a full moon with clouds over Cuba in the Caribbean. The last image is the photograph that I used as a reference. I love nocturnes and this seemed like a good time to try one. I realize that the focal point is in the center, but not sure how to change that. I thought the shape of the land mass might help offset it.

Thank you
