Original Clouds with Leftover Black and White

I’ve taken many pictures of clouds since the weather turned rainy.  I love clouds.

Today, I painted cloud shapes that I imagined (without copying  from a photo). I am still in start-up mode, so I am using left-over paints. Today’s paints are cerulean, black and white.

I differentiated between cloud shapes by using dark outlines for the edges. Since clouds have large areas of slowly-changing gray tone, I used washes of different shades to give the impression of volume.

The vertical gray splotches on the lower third of the paper is supposed to represent rain.
