Step 5: Glazing For More Vibrant And Deeper Colors

For color variation, add Cerulean Blue to the building next to the dark orange one, then add some darks among the lower area of the buildings. Gradually layer more saturated Cerulean for mid-tones, and add French Ultramarine for darker shadows between the people on the street. Keep your brushstrokes loose and impressionistic for a busy atmosphere!

Drop more Ultramarine into the wet building areas (i.e. “wet-in-wet“), then mix in Indigo for an even darker blue, and straighten out some of the now-dry details (i.e. “wet-on-dry“).
