Painting Clouds: Edges and Shade.
Clouds move and in order to paint them fast, you could focus on their light effects. Shade side, light side.
Are they creating shades onto each other? Where does the light come from? These things I use to paint skies. Something else to remember when painting clouds: make sure soft edges happen at the bottom of the clouds and most often the ‘hard edges’ are at the brightest top. Also: clouds have their effect on the ground: should you add in shade areas there because of the clouds? and so on.
