How to Paint a City Skyline (New York) in Superb Watercolor
By following these easy step by step lessons you can learn how to paint your City skyline or any other, in pure watercolors.
- How to get your image onto your paper ready to paint using my unique trace down method, so no drawing skills are needed
- How to use a limited color palette I use just 7 colors.
- How to find and use reference photographs from online video.
This course is inspired by the stunning New York City skyline.
The course lasts about one hour and it is broken down into manageable sections, there is also a sped up time lapse version so you can get an idea of what is coming in the full version and there is a high-quality download of each picture for you to use as a reference.
I show you how to find and use a reference from online videos, so you can literally use the info here to paint any City skyline in the world!
If you are not confident with your drawing skills,I have included a template of the New York City skyline for you to trace the outline
I mainly use the “Hake” brush and a flat 15 mm brush and just 7 colors, if you are not familiar with the Hake brush, there is a full free preview in the preview section where you can see a half hour video all about this fantastic brush.
There is also a free “tools required” video in the preview section which tells you what tools you need to do this course.
The painting is done in real time so I can not go back and re-film something if there is a problem. This is what appeals to me as an artist,I have to think on the spot and if there is an accident on the painting I have to sort it out there and then,so if you hear my dog grumbling in the background or the seagulls raiding my bins or me putting my brush into my coffee instead of my water, please bear with me,it is all part of the fun which, watercolor painting should be.
