TL3: Clouds and the Sky



Friday afternoon

David Chamness


Sometimes when traveling, the main attraction or a big part of your view is the sky and clouds. The sky is a dynamic element, with ever changing elements of clouds, colors, and light levels which when captured can add to a beautiful final sketch.

This Talk & Learn will teach techniques to improve your sky and clouds and how to make it a focus in your sketches.

  • Look at the different forms of clouds and skies.
  • Discuss the composition of your sketches to make the sky more interesting.
  • Test different techniques with a variety of media.
  • Review a variety of sources from my travels sketches and other artists art works.
