Perspective Painting For A Vibrant Watercolor Cityscape Of Chinatown
Step 15: Swirling In A Sky Using The Wet-On-Wet Method
As you wait for the lampposts to dry, you can work on the sky. Although it’s possible to leave it white, Bill finds it more appropriate to use vibrant colors. So bring out the Da Vinci mop brush, and prepare for the wet-on-wet technique by wetting the sky with water. You can leave some areas dry for clouds, and it’s fine to overlap some of the roofs of the buildings. Again, work quickly with this technique, as you don’t want the surface to dry before you start painting.
Prep some Cobalt Violet Light and brush the general area, being careful not to touch any wet paint as you go. Leave white areas for clouds, and add some Peacock Blue for tone variation. The important thing is not to overwork the sky, so once you’re done, leave it alone!
