Skillshare – Elements of Cityscapes and Urban Landscapes
Genre: eLearning | Language: English
Every one us dream of travelling the world, exploring new places and cities and capturing those spectacular moments in our memories. ver since I picked up my brush and ventured into the world of watercolours, painting cityscapes, urban landscapes and the places from my travel photographs were my passion.
Welcome to the first of a series of classes on painting cityscapes and urban landscapes. You are going to tread on an exceptional journey into painting the places in your dreams. We start the series with learning all the elements that make up a cityscape or urban landscape such as buildings, cars, street lamps, lights, people and anything and everything that you can think of.
This class is ideal and perfect even if you are a beginner who is just starting out with watercolours because right from sketching and brush exercises to get muscle memory and hand control, understanding colour theory, light, shadow and perspective in detail and handpicking the colours for each painting, you will be even deciding your own colour palette and curating your own colours for the future.
We are going to create our own urban landscape study journal featuring your own notes, my notes, our learnings, colour swatches from various studies, our own colour palettes and our important observations with various architectural landscapes alongside the painting projects in this class.
You will learn to create a nice contrast between the shadow and light elements, which techniques to use to make your watercolour painting shine and how to approach any cityscape or urban landscape painting in detail. Packed with all the information to get you started into every aspect and element of painting a cityscape with ease, this class, the beginning of a series, is going to create a new world of watercolours around you.
