We started copying a city landscape from an Egon Schiele’s work of art. His technique is black crayon and oil painting on canvan. To imitate the texture we can draw with black charcoal on paper, and then fill the spaces with white acrylic, spreading a thick layer of colour. When acrylic is dry we can colour the landscape with watercolor, moping the colour with a tissue .
here some Egon Schiele’s city landscapes
We can also drew inspiration froman our own landscape’s photograph, and painting it in the style of Schiele. Here an example from a my own photograph of Pembroke:
