Now I fill in the brightest highlights and add the final details. First I accentuate the awning with cadmium red light. Then I paint another layer on the building and the sidewalk, varying the direction of my strokes and the thickness of the paint to create texture and interest. I make some random shapes in the shadows of the tree with a mix of raw sienna, Payne’s gray, and cerulean blue, being sure to leave some darks showing through underneath. Finally I step back from the canvas and add a few more pinpoint highlights with a mix of brilliant yellow and white. My street scene in oil is complete!
