Turning A Famous Painting Into A Watercolor Study
Step 6: An Impressionistic Skyline
With a saturated Cobalt Blue, add a second layer for the skyline, this time including details like the chimneys in the distance. Dilute the paint a little for the smoke coming out, and for the reflections in the water. Use the pointed tip of your paintbrush for the thinnest lines, and remember that capturing the impression of the buildings and reflections is enough. This is, after all, an exercise based on an impressionist painting!
