Painting project

Part 2 Learn how to populate a scene of Venice on a wet day, with Stephen Coates
Your reference photograph for this project: a street scene of Venice

Over the past two issues of Leisure Painter I have been suggesting ways to draw and paint human figures more easily.

Last month I showed you a plan for a painting in which you could populate a street scene with people walking in the rain. This month I complete the painting in a classic line and wash style. Here’s how to do something similar.

Step 1

Begin the drawing with soft pencil then overlay with fine liner pen and erase the pencil lines completely. The perspective is rather awkward in this drawing so please refer to last month’s article if you want help with that. I also want to remind you that significant lifting out is a feature of this painting so please test your paper to make sure it will allow you to do this.
