Tutorial - Cloudy Watercolour Sky

I have been promising to do couple of watercolour sky tutorials for a while - here's finally the first one for that sky:

Things you need:
Watercolour card - the sturdier the better
Kitchen paper or tissue
pre-mixed washes (diluted paints or inks) in blue, red and grey. This technique gives the best results with watercolours but is totally possible with distress inks too.
Medium brush (round or filbert - I like filbert but that's personal preference)

If you want to use that technique as a backdrop for the image, cover the image with masking fluid first. NOTE - never use masking fluid on top of painted area - it will pull off paint when you try to remove it. Guess how I know that...

I recorded this tutorial very late after recording two other ones, as a result I seem to have lost the gift of remotely coherent speech. Fair play to you if you manage to understand anything!!

Thank you for popping by!
