Plein air urban painting – Oil painting demo
Learn techniques for painting urban subjects in this plein air video. The key to a subject such as this is to pay attention to your perspective lines and proportions. They can easily get away from you. Also…be sure not to chase the light with your shadows. It is important to stick with your beginning value sketch of the shadows. I like that I chose to paint the subject looking at it straight on. I carefully used the loading doors and other elements to project depth in the oil painting, yet giving a contemporary nod to flat shapes in other places.
Thank you for watching the video.
