Painting The Night: A Night-Time Cityscape Of Tokyo
Step 13: Calligraphy And Lettering Signs
Use Permanent Mauve for more lantern details, and Brilliant Orange to brighten up the left side. Do more touch-ups and layering here, before moving on to the lettering.
For this, use a small no. 1 round brush and pure Cadmium Red Purple, then paint the “Natsuzakaya” sign. If the paint under your hand is still wet, you can prop your hand up using your non-dominant hand for support. Paint slowly but steadily, as this sign will really help solidify your painting in a believable space.
