One of the cool things about looking at downtown Columbus from the West side is seeing all of the trees. Drawing buildings is new for me, so simplicity is essential. I tried alizarin crimson because it is one of my favorite colors to paint with. I approached this painting like the colorization of a photo. Unlike Blue Forest, Crimson City has a very tight underdrawing. In fact, my original intent was to ink this drawing.

The Outdoor Watercolor Learning Experience
How do you colorize a drawing?
- Create a strong underdrawing with the values very tight.
- Use a watered version of your paste pigment on a dry page.
- Gradually layer with watery washes, covering valued areas first.
- Don’t use the wet-in-wet method, ere on the side of thick paint.
- As always use thick paint last.
