Night vision

Part 2 Practise brushstroke techniques as you follow Elena Parashko step by step through the painting of a night scene in oils, which is also suitable for acrylics

Oils

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Practise brushstrokes to create texture

How to paint perspective using oils

Mix subtle shades to create a night painting

If you have ever watched the movement of the sun and moon across the sky, you will notice just how quickly they rise and set. Position, colour and light can change dramatically in an instant. This is a situation where photographs can successfully capture a fleeting moment to be painted later.

This month I want to show you the variety of techniques and colours I use to paint nocturnes, from how to create the effect of the moon using titanium white and cadmium yellow medium to creating perspective for a coastal scene, reflections and atmosphere – all under the cover of darkness.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to a summer of drawing and painting with Leisure Painter. This month we tackle summer landscapes, gardens and flowers, buildings, harbours and boats, animals, local scenes, a moonlit seascape, horses and a flamenco dancer in a variety of your favourite media. If you're ready to try something different, experiment with oil pastel resists with acrylic inks and watercolour, look at coloured grounds for mixed-media work and embrace digital with an app that will help you draw and paint better pictures! From loose and lively to detail, monotone to colour work, and projects from photographs to how to paint from life - enjoy another month of practical tutorials, demonstrations and inspiration.
