When it comes to art and painting, there is always a new ‘landscape’ that can be covered when learning. However, painting an urban landscape can look like a daunting task, even if it really isn’t! With the right technique for drawing an urban landscape, your task will become easier.
Here are steps to draw a cityscape that will help you with this project:
Start out by painting the basic shapes, structures as well as the proportions of these structures.
Once you are satisfied with the basic structure of your painting, begin to refine it and highlight the parts that you want to bring to the viewer’s notice.
Once you have refined the basic structure, start working on the under-painting. Here is where you can build up the values while also adding some details.
Observe every building, every street and corner in your painting and add the colours that will further give each element in your painting a distinct look, as shown in the image below.
Once you are happy with the under-painting, you can work further on the shadows and other darker shades appearing in your painting.
Next, using white, add the lighter shades to your painting. You can also add trees to your painting for a little greenery!
