Hello, I'm Jacklyn Laflamme. I'm a Professional Artist with jacklynlaflamme.com. In this clip, I'm going to show you how to paint a sky. You will need a canvas. You will need acrylic paint. You will need paintbrushes. We're going to start off, and when painting a sky, you want to lay out all the base colors for the sky. So, I have a little bit of a light blue mixed with white, and I kind of have the two colors on my brush at the same time. So, I kind of dip it in the blue and dip it in the white, and I'm just going to go back and forth, and you would fill in your entire area where the sky is. Back and forth. And you want to get a little bit of variants in the color, little bit darker; you see how you have a little bit darker and a little bit lighter, and that's okay. Now, once you get your background in for the sky, you may want to start to add some clouds. So, I'm going to take a little pointy brush, and I'm just going to start laying in some whites for the clouds and because the paint is still wet, I can work those clouds right into the paint. So, you see, even though it's, the white is going on, it's kind of blending with the blue and it's creating a nice, kind of soft effect. And I'm just kind of taking my brush and moving it back and forth to create those waves in the clouds, and then I'm just going to pull the edges here and again, I'm going to go back in here and fill them in, and just that easily and that quickly, you can create the entire sky.
