|Make a great picture of a city at night, by using different techniques.|
You will need:
|First, dampen the entire sheet of paper.|
|Use watered down poster or watercolour paint to give it a really soft, atmospheric feel on the damp paper.|
Use lighter colours towards the top, and slightly more purple towards the bottom.
|Before it dries completely, add in some wispy clouds in the sky.|
|Another good technique is to take a bit of tissue paper and gently pad the clouds to pick a bit of the paint off, doing a little twist as you pad.|
|Once the paper is completely dry, you can add in some shapes with thicker black paint.|
|Once thatís dry, start to add in darker shading along the sides and edges of the buildings.|
You can even add little hints of detail in the distance.
|When thatís dry, you can add in more detail with marker pens.|
Use a thin pen to add in the fine details. For trees, just do very wispy branches.
|Add in a car in the foreground with a thicker marker pen.|
|Finally, chalks and pastels are really brilliant for highlights and lights, and bring the picture to life. |
Try it yourself!
