Tokyo Night Time Cityscape Watercolor Class
This is an advanced watercolor tutorial featuring the award-winning teacher, William Dunn. Bill will walk you through his interpretation of a nighttime cityscape in Japan's Ginza, the nightclub district. Bill shows you how to paint a tricky nightclub scene step by step. Bill is using a photograph as a reference that is full of neon colors and activity with the Tokyo Tower prominently displayed. Everything in this photo is vibrant and glowing. Dunn will show you how to add more color to liven up the painting and will work from big shapes to small shapes, painting detail with the brush.
