Sketch into Spring #9 Capture the Weather

I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this prompt.  Alisa, our teacher, lives across the street from the beach and so spends time down there, watching the ocean and the skys and their ever changing colours.  She advised taking photographs so that we can study them later, as obviously they don't move about and change, (unless you live in the wizarding world with Harry Potter of course).  I took my photos on Monday when the sky was changing minute by minute.  We had sun and light clouds, then dark clouds and rain; the sky was beautiful.

Now, I have no idea what colours to use to get different shades of greys and the blues in the sky and the whites/greys of the clouds, so I just played about with my paints until I got what I thought were the colours I saw in my photos.

I just made simple paint patches on my page and did some writing.  I enjoyed this and think I may explore colour mixing further at some point.

Well, until next time............
.........thanks for popping by to say 'Hi' *hugs*


  1. Color mixing is fun. Sometimes, what you think should be a certain color turns out to be something totally different. I do like what you did, and how the page came together using different paint combinations. I've seen those same sky and cloud colors in my part of the world before, too. Nicely done.

    1. Thank you again Elizabeth. I really enjoy playing with paint; it's a very satisfying activity :o)

  2. Wow, I would think that prompt was harder to do than it sounds. I look at the sky and clouds and often wonder.... "How would I make those colors?" I don't have much experience with mixing colors. Good Job, Mo!!

    1. Thank you Boo. I don't have much experience with mixing paints either, but have started thinking about it a bit more :o)

  3. I think play is a key word, as adults we tend to forget that in our search for perfectionist. (Which I do too much of and never reach it anyway.) lol


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate every one of them ((hugs)) :-))
