A sketch of a Hooker in Ballycastle

A Hooker, I just love the name of these old working boats. This sketch of is of a Galway Hooker off the coast of Ballycastle, Northern Ireland. I’m working on a final painting in the studio today. At the moment the sketch seems to be better than the final watercolour which is kind of annoying.

How to get better painting clouds

Hooker

How does one get better at painting clouds? Well, that was the question I had at the beginning of this week. I admire Sergej Temerev a lot so really it’s not that  difficult. I just looked at as many watercolours of his as possible, there is a good Pinterest page featuring his work, here’s the link. I also looked at all the YouTube videos I could find. I’ve done this before but one has to repeat and practice a lot if one wants to get better.
