Step 9: Adding A Fancy Entrance

For the hotel’s awning, switch to the no. 12 round brush, mixing Neutral Tint and Viridian and painting it wet-on-dry. Leave the white stripes, but paint over the lettering, as you can use white paint to paint it in later.

Paint the limo next, using a no. 8 rigger brush and Neutral Tint to paint the body of the car. Avoid the highlights, headlights, windows, and wheels, and try to capture the impression of a shiny, metallic surface. Paint the driver standing in front as well. For the car behind the limo, use a lighter Pyrrole Red for variation.

Go back to the no. 12 round brush, then use Ivory Black to add an extra punch to the darkest of shadows in your watercolor building.
