Watercolor lends itself so well to painting clouds (and water).

Watercolor and tape

I have a book that suggests all kinds of ideas and techniques to start the creative process. This painting began with a wet-in-wet background and then strips of tape randomly placed while the objects were painted. There were more layers and the tape got moved around and I painted overlapping flowers in the background. This is the end result - fresher and more interesting I think than if I'd just set out to paint a still life.
