I'm trying to do a study of Valley of the Yosemite by Bierstadt, because I want to do more landscape painting,
but I'm having trouble getting the clouds. I think part of the difficulty is the values in that painting which are very complicated anyways. But something about the way it lights the clouds seems impossible to get, and I don't know what to do. I have tried painting clouds before and it has worked out all right, but these clouds are incredibly difficult.
Is there any technique to use with painting clouds? I don't know what to do.
