Format: Paperback
This book talks about materials, basic techniques and offers tips too. It helps you set up a colour palette for this dramatic subject. It also talks about different cloud formations and observing clouds in the field. In fact three pages of this 32 page book are dedicated to this. Since understanding your subject is of prime importance, Alan then looks at individual types of skies for you to paint. Each painting is presented as a step by step. I liked Clouds at Sunset best as I found the other paintings rather dark. Twilight in the Wilderness is a close second. This book is perhaps not for the complete beginner but the improver, who understands basic techniques and the use of paint and colour and just wants ideas about what to paint. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's yarns and fabrics blog.

Excellent learning tool for anyone who wants to capture clouds effectively in their paintings for the most realistic skies. Highly recommended for beginner or advanced artist.

I struggle with painting clouds because my edges never seem to look exactly right. I was hoping this would help, but not only does it not tell what colors to use it fails to give any advice on how to make the clouds look like clouds. It pretty much says draw the clouds and then paint them. I was hoping it would be more step by step. I also don't like the over-sized book because it doesn't fit on my shelf with my other art books.

My clouds have always been kludgy. Between using this book and hours of studying and taking cloud detail pictures of paintings at a large art museum I finally painted a sky and clouds that I can stand!! I'd suggest using this book in conjunction with studies.

Nice paintings featured in the book. However, there is not a lot of description by the artist as to how to achieve the results.

If you don't want to make paintings that look exactly like the cover, you're better off getting something else. This book is completely dedicated to creating things that look EXACTLY like the one on the cover. Meh.

Large book so is not always easy to manage either a place to store or carrying it around. But only a few examples. Lovely pictures but I think there are better "sky" books. HOLLEY
