Now the street scene will really come to life when I paint the light shining down through the buildings and trees! First, I paint the sky with a mix of cerulean blue and white. I use the negative space as a guide and paint around the foliage, “punching” light in between to break up the solid mass of leaves. I brighten up the foliage at the upper right with a mix of cadmium yellow light, sap green, yellow ochre, and Naples yellow. Then I mix a few variations of cadmium yellow light, cadmium orange, flesh, and brilliant yellow to use in the street, the building highlights, and the tree trunks. By mixing a little of each color with white, I get a lot of exciting highlight colors. I use a mixture of blue-violet, white, and flesh to paint the crosswalk lines and then fill in the sidewalk with a mix of Naples yellow and white. Then I dab on a thick mix of sap green and white for the bush in the foreground and apply a mix of white, cerulean blue, and brilliant yellow for the bright flowers.
