Urban scene by night

Tom0779 30 Aug 2020

This is watercolor on A3 sized good quality paper. This is very complex. It needs a lot of drawing and you have to be careful with the different light conditions. It was my first urban scene ever. I think I need more practice in this direction.



The expression of the shadow is excellent。 I like it very much.
Tom I am always your fan.

I am looking forward to seeing more urban works from you. City scenes are probably one of my favorite painting subjects.

@Felix: Thanks a lot for your attention. I forgot to mention: this is a scene from Strasbourg. I plan to learn the "pen (or line) and wash" technique like urban sketchers do. This technique is a combination of fine-liner resp. Ink drawing and watercolor painting. I find this very interesting. I have done some works with this technique (more fun paintings). Not sure if someone is interested to see this.

I like Alphonso Dunn's Urban Sketching videos on YouTube, he's a great teacher. I also bought his two books and can really recommend them
