first.. I used to write down the elements I want to put inside my drawing.

image

And then, make the sketch. 

The most important part in drawing a landscape is composition. I try to imagine myself as a photographer. I observe many photos and other scenery paintings and try to imagine the whole scenery, along with the character(s) inside it. Do not to diverge from your concept.

and so, this is my sketch

image

I have every elements I need.

Take note on how the clouds looked like, make sure they have the right perspective. I used this photo as reference. 

image

But since mine is a night scenery, I used a dark colors on the clouds.

and then the process..

image

feeling a bit dull? browse more photos for references and/ or inspiration.

image

this one has the right mood and the toNES I need, now back to my canvas..

image

Now I got the right mood :)

tips: be patient on drawing your elements, dont get too rush on everything. and watch carefully for the colors. 

image

This piece is almost finish, all I have to do is retouch the tone a little bit ;) but overall I finished with the process.

here is my brush setting for the clouds

image

make sure you do it on a different size of brushes.

I hope this has been a helpful post :)
