    How to Oil Paint Nocturne Cityscapes


    by Oilpaintingdvd

    In Volume #27: Painting Nocturnes: The Brooklyn Bridge, Hall teaches the beginning art student the techniques that are essential for creating dazzling nocturnal cityscapes. Prior to painting the main Brooklyn Bridge piece, he discusses five of his larger nocturnes and then teaches several foundation color theory concepts. Hall then moves on to the main demonstration painting, where he teaches one how to establish the foundation architectural and landscape forms, mix warm and cool colors, and then illustrates in great detail how the vast array of colored city lights are actually made to appear luminous within the darkness. Within each phase of the demonstration, the student is able to view enlarged sections of the same reference painting that Hall is looking at while he paints--all within the same screen!
