This Art Attack will give you lots of tips on how to paint night-time pictures.
You will need:
What colour do you think of for night? Chances are it's black!
But, things aren't just black at night...
|Here, Neil's painting a blue sky that gets darker towards the edges..|
|...and adding in a moon.|
|Now he's adding in some darker clouds...|
|...and highlighting the edges of the clouds that face the moon with white.|
|Next, a silvery-blue sea...|
|...and some more white for the reflection of the moon in the water.|
|The land in the distance is quite faded, so he's adding that in a dark grey.|
|The buildings in the foreground have light blue rooves, where the moon catches them.|
|Neil's using grey for silhouetted buildings...|
|...and a grey-green mix for fields in the foreground.|
|Finally, a few lights in the distance...|
|...and a few in the buildings.|
And there it is - not just black at night!
Next time you're out after dark, have a look around you, and see what colours you can see!
Try it yourself!
