Use a sharpie marker to practice drawing different styles and shapes of buildings. Be inventive; try drawing buildings with rectangular lines and also curvy lines. Try drawing some buildings very tall and others short. Some cityscapes include offices, banks, hospitals, churches, libraries, museums, theatres, water towers, ferris wheels, and clock towers.
CREATE A SKYLINE
On a clean sheet of paper, draw your favorite buidlings. As you are drawing, be sure to overlap the shapes. Be sure to draw some buildings larger and some smaller. Next, add small details like doors, windows and chimneys. Be inventive; create some imaginary buildings using unusual shapes and colors.
Using your watercolor paint and brush, add color to your design. To create visual interest, try painting the main shape of your building a warm color and for contrast, paint the windows or doors a cool color. Keep repeating this process, each time changing colors. Be sure to rinse your brush each time you change colors!
