Another book I am reading is by the same author David Bellamy 'Skies, Light and Atmosphere'.
I love his brooding watercolours or as Jethro Tull once said 'Brewing , heavy weather'.
So I have decided to follow all the exercises and learn ... I hope.
One thing I did learn in Ruins III reworked was don't give up if something goes sideways.
My first attempt at the 'rain cloud' was a disaster, to me it ruined the entire piece so I reread what David had said .. 're-wet the entire sky'... oops
So I took a sponge and removed the whole cloud,re-wet the WHOLE sky and redid the cloud.
It worked (well in my opinion it worked)
I'm a lot happier with this except for the dark 'rain' that was caused by the removal of the old cloud which filled in some scrapes that I had put in.
Oh well you can't win em all :-)
