This painting is not monotone, we have used 2 colours for more interest - Van Dyke Brown and Paynes Grey
When you do the sketch make sure you
straighten the church tower!
Dampen sky with clean water - paint in loose washes
of both colours. Don't worry if the paint goes into the
buildings. Dab out buildings with paper towel whilst
the paint is still wet. Continue with foreground using
the same method. Make sure the colour at the bottom
is darker. Add colour to area under buildings whilst the
paper is still wet. Dry
Putting in the texture. You can paint in the lines of
vines or you can use a printing method. Here I used
old packing material. Wash the paint onto the
card and use it to print on the paper. Follow the lines
of the vines. You can also use a toothbrush to splash
on the paint.
Paint the buildings in large areas. Start with the
very dark building. Don't put in the windows yet.
Paint in fine lines with a Rigger in the foreground
Splatter on some white gouache with a toothbrush
and paint in fine lines with a white pen for the
windows. (Signo uniball by Mitsubishi is a good one)
