City Painting Ideas: How To Paint A Busy City Landscape
Step 7: Adding Some Style To The City Landscape
Next, switch over to the no. 6 rigger brush, and use Burnt Umber to add some smaller building details, leaving white spaces for signs. Go upwards to the furthest buildings, and add some long thin stripes where appropriate, changing the direction when the lines become too regular or too similar to another building’s details. Continue applying paint to the street-side of the buildings, adding small marks to serve as windows and other random structural details to give the impression of a bustling city landscape. Use pure Neutral Tint to change up the color, or mix in Viridian and Cobalt Green for a different pattern for the last building on the right. Tiny dots can be added to the last building in the very back, and a gray glaze can be added to the areas in shadow to darken certain parts.
