Winter Tallinn (watercolor) + step by step processsteemCreated with Sketch.

in art •  5 months ago  (edited)

Hello, friends! Today I will show you a view of winter Tallinn, which I painted on one of the recent online webinars. I've been there once, and I've only been there one day. I like this view from the hill to the old town, the tower and the bay. I saw the theme of the webinar and was happy. My collection of watercolor cities is increasing.

I tried a new technique - I used flat brushes. But I hope you like the result. Roofs of houses look chaotic and abstract.


I made a pencil sketch. I drew the horizon line, the tower and the roof lines.


I started painting the sky and the bay. I used a pale mixture of blue, yellow and pink colors for the sky. I used darker shades of blue for the Bay.


I took a flat brush and applied light yellow strokes on the sunlit places of houses and roofs.


I took a wider flat brush and applied blue strokes to the roofs of the houses. Abstract picture, but I hope that then everything will look good.


The next step I began to paint the tower, the roofs of houses. I used a brighter reddish-brown color. I also started drawing trees and blue shadows from them on the roofs of houses.


Lots of chaotic brush strokes and my painting is finished!

I like watching the step by step of how you paint, Veta. Your blocking technique is really efficient, and the end result is a good looking town :).


Thanks for the nice words @scrawly ! It's a strange brush technique...but I like variety and I'm getting more and more knowledge of watercolors.
