Rendering Distance in Clouds in your Artwork Creations

Depth of clouds when rendering in artworks.

What makes a view of a big beautiful cloudy sky hovering over the landscape seem like the horizon is so far in the distance? For the artist to capture this feeling in their artwork, so that people sense it, there are some principles to keep in mind.

Ellipses in clouds painting to keep in mind.

Clouds have Form

Always remember that clouds have form. Clouds vary greatly in shape but they all have one thing in common and that's a top, bottom and four sides. An object with a structure as such can be rendered with perspectives. There's two ways we'll look at to help us in painting and drawing clouds and that's by using blocks and ellipses.

Perspective drawing can help us to render a realistic cloudy sky scene or background. We're fimiliar with drawing blocks in perspective drawing representing houses a barn or maybe many large blocks representing city buildings for a landscape or cityscape art composition. It's using this same artist technique except that we're placing the blocks in the sky of our artwork for clouds instead of buildings.
