Snowy City Painting

Snowy City Tutorial Video

The best painting projects often come from some of the simplest of drawing projects. This snowy city sky is a series of buildings, with snow-topped roofs, sitting below a swirly sky. Easy to draw, and thus easy to paint.

The extra fun little twist to this painting is that the swirls in the sky, which are kind of “Starry Night” looking, are traced again with more blue paint after the first layer is dry. The extra paint creates a deeper layer of blue and makes those swirls look all the more mesmerizing.

For maximum results, I recommend using liquid watercolor paint on real watercolor paper. Years of painting with students taught me that it was the only way to get that really pretty textured color that watercolors are famous for.
