Layers are dry, so I'm back onto this oil painting over the weekend. Hoping to get at least 95% of it done.

RF-4C Phantom II drawing practically completed. I just need to get my eyes off of it and then come back to it to do some cleanup and finalizing. The original is already taken but there will be prints coming soon. StratoArt.com

The nearly finished NCC-1701B Enterprise 1:2500 scale. Just took some basic cell phone pics against some black backgrounds. I forgot a few decals though (dang! there are a lot of them). Just waiting for the decals to finish drying and then I'll spray with a few coats of sealer.

Painting clouds. Here is a short animated .gif of my digital painting of some clouds in Adobe Photoshop. There are many ways to build up the clouds with paint (either analog, physical paint or digital), this is one way I develop them. First, I start off painting in the highlighted edges where the sun reflects. Second, I begin to paint the shadowed areas at the base and the areas opposite of the reflected sunlit edges of the clouds. Clouds are unique in that they are volumetric masses of water vapor that aren't quite solid, yet not quite transparent...there is great deal of subsurface scattering and light dispersion that goes on with clouds that make them challenging subjects to paint or draw. Third, I begin to paint in the neutral areas with grey tones that reflect other structures of the cloud, yet aren't directly highlighted nor are in complete shadows. Finally, I develop more of the base in shadows and start blending the shapes together as clouds are not precise hard structures, but have many areas of overlap and blending, yet still there are distinct structures of building up water vapor. Hoping this makes sense! I love painting clouds like this, either traditionally with physical paint or drawing or via digital methods.
