Step 11: Shiny Cars

Next are the cars. Using a blend of Cadmium Yellow Orange, Cadmium Red Light, and Quinacridone Magenta, paint a simple brick-like shape that can represent a car. It should not be bigger than any of the houses. Use Neutral Tint and add another car to the right. Like you did with the buildings, feel free to mix different colors for each car, but try to use brighter colors and leave thin lines of white to give the illusion of the metallic surface of a car. This is a chance to focus on the little elements that contribute to the overall scene, and again to practice honing your artistic sense and intuition. In turn, this helps build self-confidence and trust in your own judgement, which is crucial for any aspiring artist.
