Jeffrey I am shure....., I find them even a little bit better but that must be a matter of taste or not?
Glad that you can paint GOOD clouds so the weather on your layout will be always fine!!( just like it reflects the person:) )

The technique is simple. Just cut a piece of paper into the shape you want and then paint it to look like a cloud. Go outside and look at real clouds if you have to. Flat white with some gray wash works wonders.

Ok I'll buy that Arizona ocean front property now........

I'm no that easily fooled, If you look the clouds are in three clumps and it's easy to see that Jeffrey used a picture of his white poodle in the second clump from the left. His doggies' head is looking left and if you follow to the right he even has a tail.:D ;) :D

I just love using my noggin' when looking at clouds.:eek:

But lets NOT even got to third clump for what looks to be a medieval elephant. Alright, I need a drink.

Looks Good,
