In this short humble video you are taught how to achieve a sky using basic wash principles. Thoroughly saturating the canvas with water applied by a large brush followed by the introduction of an artist’s medium known as ‘Gesso’ to then prime the surface. It is then a case of washes and grading to finalise the sky alongside the confident use of ample amounts of white acrylic to create bold natural looking clouds. Enjoy.
Have you ever wanted to know how to construct and build your own large canvas frame. Well this video shows you in a series of still clips the step by step process involved with doing just that. Framing and canvas building can be very rewarding because not only is it another skill but it also allows you to get exactly the right size tailored to your needs. Have fun.
