Step 4: Adding Contrast To A Perspective Painting

With Burnt Umber and a touch of French Ultramarine, paint a second layer along the shadows of the left-side buildings. You can also draw in a few architectural details with your brush. Use Peacock Blue to liven the rightmost building wall, and touch in some Permanent Mauve next to cooler areas in your perspective painting. Keep alternating between warm and cool colors for a good color contrast!

Next, streak in more Permanent Mauve under the vehicles for their cast shadow, and switch to Brilliant Orange to brighten the rightmost building and some of its details. Use the tip of your brush for this, as even a big brush can come to a small point if it’s of good quality.
