Cloudy

The same cloud sketched four times, continually changing as sunset approached (‘cloud’ is sometimes more verb than noun). The light pencil lines were mostly drawn blind, with watercolour wash added straight after the final drawing, the colours still fading from the sky. The clouds were clouding over a city, and I was stood in the city sketching them; is this urban sketching? Below are some other attempts at clouds from the last few years.
