|Do you want to know how to draw clouds, and make them look fluffy and realistic?|
You will need:
|First, draw a simple cartoon cloud on white paper, with little curves for the edges.|
Make sure the cloud is an irregular shape.
|Then, if you shade down the edges with blue, it makes them look really fluffy and billowy.|
|For a drawing on blue paper, chalk or pastels are very good for clouds.|
Here, again, itís just a case of doing an irregular shaped cloud - but by building up the edges with the chalk on its side.
|Once youíve done that, to make them look really fluffy, just smudge the cloud edges lightly with your finger.|
|Then, to make it look really 3D, add in some highlights just around the top edges of the cloud.|
|Watercolours are also great for making clouds - itís just a case of dampening your paper slightly.|
Donít use too much water - just spread it all out across the sky.
|Then, add blobs of white and grey paint onto your damp paper.|
|When itís starting to dry a bit, put some lighter curves at the top of the clouds with "c" shapes, and then put some darker ones underneath the clouds.|
And there you have some really angry, but fluffy watercolour clouds.
|Finally, a great trick for clouds at night... just turn a piece of chalk on its edge, but donít do the whole of the clouds - just the top edges around the moon, again with little "c" shapes.|
|Smudge it with your finger, and then add some more little curves where the moon catches the edge of the clouds.|
And there you have lots of different ways of doing fluffy clouds.
Try it yourself!
