|Hereís a great way to make a picture of a lightning storm over a city at night.|
You will need:
|Take a piece of paper, and draw a picture, roughly blocking in your city.|
It doesnít need to be neat. You can draw a main road that wiggles towards you, and some side roads.
|Switch the lights on in the city, with yellow wax crayon dots.|
The dots in the distance must be fairly heavy. Along the roads, add squiggly lines coming towards you, and more dots for car headlights.
|Add in some orange and red dots for other lights.|
Donít forget some back lights on the cars
|Now take a light blue wax crayon.|
Starting in one top corner, add a zigzag bolt of lightning across the sky, with some smaller ones coming off.
|Go over the lightning in white wax crayon.|
You wonít be able to see this yet.
|Now to make it nighttime.|
Mix some black poster paint with water so that itís nice and runny, and brush it all over the picture from top to bottom. Do you see what happens?
|If you cover the whole picture, youíll have something that looks like this.|
|Itís a good idea to go over the city again to make it slightly darker, because the lightning will have lit up the sky.|
Try it yourself!
