Quick watercolour sky with Charles Evans

British artist and art teacher Charles Evans shows us how easy and quick it is to paint a watercolour sky.

He simply uses 2 brushes - both by Aquafine (3/4 inch flat and 8 round) and 2 colour shades of Aquafine watercolours (Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna)

His most important tip is actually not to hesitate to wet the paper with a lot of water!
