I’m showing you how to paint clouds and rain in oil paint in this painting demonstration. I started with raw umber and unbleached titanium white using acrylic paint (Liquitex basics). You can paint the same underpainting with oil paint, just let it dry all the way before you move onto the color glazing layers. The oil painting for this piece started when you see me move onto blues.
