This will be interesting to see how similar or different all the entries are with such specific parameters. Good luck everyone.

I've come across this a few times. Don't know how helpful it is for everyone, I thinks its a neat little tutorial if anyone is planning on painting which I imagine you all are. http://www.androidblues.com/cloudtut.html

Zoom in people just because its brilliant. http://www.googleartproject.com/en-g...rring/2057935/

I could get lost on this site for hours. (I wont tho cos I have to do some work). Its still worth a good zoom tho! I recommend researching John Constable as a ref for any painters out there.

I took a screen grab of the above post from Google art project and moved it more into the colour palette thats been specified just to see all the colours that we get. Its not accurate obviously but it shows nicely how to avoid the colourised look. See the pinks through, the greens, and purples in the bottom image? Well as you can see they are all relatively blue! No greens here. Similarly in the top image, see that nice patch of pinky-blue sky in the middle - so do I but my colour picker doesn't.

We use the cloud naming system invented in 1802 by Englishman Luke Howard. To describe clouds he used Latin names: the first part of the name describes height, and the second part describes shape.

Prefixes for height

cirro = high clouds - above 6 km
alto = midlevel clouds - between 2 and 6 km
no prefix = low level clouds

Names for shapes

cirrus = curly or fibrous
stratus = layered
cumulus = lumpy or piled

To indicate that a cloud can produce precipitation, you should add nimbus.

Dust and Cloud study. I plan on doing a few more studies between now and the end. Trying to avoid jumping straight in without loosening up first. Thinking about volume, shape and scale. Today I received this in the post too:



I'm a right cloud geek now, I now know that those cool anvil clouds are called Incus. As the cumulonimbus swells upwards forming a cumulo congestus. Its vapor starts to form ice crystals which spread in every direction. Usually this happens at the tropopause (base of the stratosphere)! Geek.

Value study, I'm trying to understand how the atmospheric perspective would work.
