By using dense Ceramic White to create the highest fluffy tops of the clouds I’m able to scumble paint down, then rag it to soften the body. Once the softening work is done for the first mass I’ll repeat the process to make layered cumuli all the way down to the horizon. The horizon line gets special treatment – I’ll make a brighter blended line above the landscape that merges into the sky.
