Chapter 2. Painting Clouds, Water, and Stone

Painting a landscape seems like a simple task; after all, the major elements do not move. Some elements in the landscape, however, can prove difficult to paint in a believable manner. In this chapter, I will demonstrate one method of painting such elements as clouds, water, and rocks.

In this tutorial, you will also see me change my mind, back up, and head in a different direction. Often art tutorials make the process seem so clean and straightforward that readers wonder why they can't make it work the same way. I always like to include a chapter or two where you see the mistakes and course adjustments.
