Step 8: Street And Vehicle Details


Moving on, use Neutral Tint to add the impression of store shops and windows along the street in the bottom left corner. Draw abstract shapes with your brush, before switching to the no. 8 round brush for smaller details.

Mix Burnt Sienna, Indigo, and Ultramarine, then paint some awnings to the right, and the windows and roof of the closest car. Streak in some Neutral Tint to make this car look shinier, and to paint the wheels.

Do the next car over, skipping the car in between to prevent the wet paint from bleeding into another wet area. Paint the middle car as well, and change your colors slightly each time, adding Burnt Umber for one, or more Neutral Tint for another, etc. Remember that the vehicles will look smaller as they near the vanishing point, so make sure to do this to create the proper tunnelling effect! Then, block in some dark shadows for the middle building on the right side before continuing.
