Night sky and its reflection :
To paint that beautiful night sky, add a drop of Dark blue acrylic paint at the top of the paper followed by a drop of cobalt blue, ultra-marine blue and pink.
To paint the reflection of the sky in the river below, follow the reverse order of paint drops. Blend them all in layers.
Draw some clouds with cobalt blue paint. Highlight parts of it with dark blue and white paint for a more natural effect on your Sketchbook.
Paint the same on the bottom of the page to create the reflection of the clouds on water.
River bank :
Stick a strip of washi tape at the center of your paper for a clean look. Pick up any old paint brush that you have with uneven bristles. Dip it in black paint and dab it on your Watercolor Sketchbook.
Take off your washi tape. Dab your paint brush just below it with lighter strokes to create an illusion of reflection Watercolor Sketchbook for Beginners .
For more detailing, draw barks of trees with a round brush and paint its leaves using the same method.
Pick up any old tooth brush that you have and dip it in white acrylic paint. Hold it close to the top of the paper and flick its bristles gently to create a minute splatter of stars.
Make a few strokes with white paint in the water to create a flowing effect.
