How to draw clouds

How to draw clouds is one of the many video tutorials I completed for video jug.com a few years ago, but I have never shared it on my blog and so thought I would!


This video was one of twenty produced at the same time from the first set I did for video jug. For the first set of videos I had to mainly draw and so only needed a minimum amount of art equipment. This meant I was able to go to their TV studio in central London, to film all twenty videos. 

I basically had to sit and ignore the cameraman completely and talk through, step by step how to paint and draw various subjects. Not easy and so I did do a little bit of preparation in advance, but in the videos I do start with a plain piece of paper!

If you want to have a go at following this video, you will need either stretched watercolour paper or strong cartridge paper, watercolour paint, a fine brush, some water of course (I use an old jam jar), and finally patience. 

This is a video that shows you how to paint an eye. It's amazing at the amount of different colours that it takes to paint an eye in order to make it beautifully realistic, yet it really is simple to do. Good luck!
