Painting The Night: A Night-Time Cityscape Of Tokyo
Step 12: Painting A Road In Perspective And Adding Depth
With the no. 12 pointed round brush, pick up the Neutral Tint/Black mixture, and dilute it a little before brushing over the road gently. Avoid the cars, and paint around the road markings. You can glaze over the rest, then drop in darker browns or blacks into the foreground area for more depth and contrast. Streak darker lines into the road as well to make the lines clearer.
Pick up more black for a more intense color, then add an edge to the sidewalk and little architectural shadows on some of the buildings.
