Here are steps to draw a cityscape that will help you with this project:

Step 1:

Start out by painting the basic shapes, structures as well as the proportions of these structures.

Step 2:

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.

Step 3:

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.

Step 4:

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.

Step 5:

Once you are happy with the under-painting, you can work further on the shadows and other darker shades appearing in your painting.

Step 6:

Next, using white, add the lighter shades to your painting. You can also add trees to your painting for a little greenery!
