My laptop, after four years of faithful service, has gone on a freezing and shutting-down spree. Despite being completely wiped, it’s still acting up … and I now can’t use Photoshop or my tablet. Today’s sky sketch was created on my phone!

Quick pencil study.

Light shining through clouds. Very cloudy, but little rain.

Using my iPhone I often create slow-motion videos, but this is the first time I’ve tried time-lapse: you can see the result below!

I was ready to paint a glorious square of blue. Then I saw how light from the city was glowing in the clouds.

There was a lot of cloud cover today.

I drew this using a couple of brushes from Kyle T. Webster’s Real Watercolours set. I recently treated myself to them and they’re great fun to use. Plus they have the bonus of “Undo”!

One thing I’m hoping to take from this project is that I become extremely good at painting clouds.

I’ve run out of newsprint paper and must get some more as it’s the paper I use with conte pastels. This time I drew all the quick poses in pencil, which took a little getting used to.14

I paid more attention to the sky today. Though most of the time it was completely cloudy, there was one moment when the cloud thinned just enough for the sun to be seen as a white disc.

This one I drew on my phone, using an app called Sketch Club!

I love looking at the sky and seeing how different it appears every day and night. For a while I’ve been wondering about doing quick little colour studies of what a piece of sky has looked like, and today I managed to sketch one!

After a bright, clear day heat haze fell. Now it’s reflecting the orange glow of the streetlights.

I was very rusty as I began to draw last night. It took me a while to loosen up. I’ve barely sketched this week – what a difference it makes!
