Step 11: Lifting A Line In A Perspective Painting

When the road area is dry, you can use a lifting technique to lift out the markings on the road. While you can use plain water and a brush, Bill shows a better method to get a cleaner, lighter result.

First, use the artist’s tape to tape around the area you want to lighten. Don’t forget to keep this in perspective, so the line marking should be thinner at the top and wider at the bottom. Next, wet the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser sponge, then gently scrub the painting within the taped area. When you’re done, carefully pull the tape off to reveal a lightened line on the road. Repeat this process for the other markings, and you’ll find that this really helps add to the illusion of depth in this perspective painting.
