Perspective Painting For A Vibrant Watercolor Cityscape Of Chinatown
Step 14: Painting Lampposts And Streetlights In Perspective
Switch to pure Leaf Green to paint a few more signs, then move on to paint the streetlights while the signs dry. Use the no. 10 rigger brush to mix Ivory Black with the dark purple mixture, and paint the lampposts lining both sides of the road. Start from the background this time and paint towards the foreground, applying perspective as you go. This means the lampposts gradually get taller and further away from each other as you near the foreground of your painting. They also get darker in value, so add a little more Ivory Black each time to get this effect.
While you still have the dark color, you can finish off this part by painting a small storm drain along the front of the sidewalk.
