Made Mistakes

Cloud dancer

Digital watercolor and pencil portrait of a woman dancing outside at sunset. The figure, trees, and house in the background are all in silhouette against the pink, purple, and blue clouds.

PaperFaces portrait of Christina U. inspired by a photograph on Sktchy.

I’ll say this about cloudscapes, they’re a million times easier to draw than portraits. I pretty much puked up some color on the canvas in five minutes and smudged it all together in another five and presto chango… one photo-realistic sky for your viewing pleasure.

I can see why they’re a popular subject for Paper creators.
