# Quick watercolour for the architects – details – How to Draw a Building in 1-Point Perspective

Hi, I’m Meyssam Seddigh
in this series, we want to show how you can draw details quickly with very fast colouring. for this drawing, I used the one-point perspective in oır youtube channel, there are a lot of tutorial for one-point perspective, please check them if you need more tips. for any of drawing in our channel, I’m not using any references. it’s coming from my mind at the same time. the paper I used here is 200g/m2 with low quality. let’s continue the video with the normal speed with some tips for similar tutorials check out our youtube channel Since I have no idea, to begin with, I start by drawing a few horizontal and vertical lines I remind you that I will use perspective with one point And in this way, we have three directions for drawing lines Horizontal lines – Vertical lines – and lines that follow a point. First I want to start by drawing a tower that can be in the corner of a building or a passage Nothing came to my mind more than a simple cube. I will continue the design by drawing a sloping ceiling attached to the cube All you need to draw a sloping roof is just a diagonal line. Draw a sloping line as desired The tower can be hexagonal or octagonal I didn’t use vanishing point till now in this drawing. I’m drawing the first point now It is not necessary to draw a point for the perspective at the beginning of the sketch By drawing a few parallel lines we can pretend that there are details on the edges A few millimetres protruding at the end of the lines can suggest additional details Draw a street using horizontal lines, vertical lines and lines that follow the only vanishing point. The upper edges of buildings can be sloping On the other side of the street can be one or more chimneys or another tower Randomly you can add details to your design. Don’t focus on one point for better results You can use different photos for reference. And don’t be afraid to make a mistake Don’t forget the magic of parallel lines. Parallel lines can pretend that there are many details. Black dots do the same. Use them in many different sizes and shapes You can darken the depth of the work, or vice versa,
The farther away it disappears The details of the closer things are more important
Note that most details can be flat or two-dimensional hatches in different directions and distances can be used to represent different textures Trees can be a good end to the edges of a sketch check out our tutorials for drawing trees The first step can be to paint the sky Use a brush and water. It is best to have an uneven edge. This is your taste It is very important to wait for a little after the sky is wet The paper should absorb water. But don’t dry The quality of your painting depends on the quality of your paper and watercolor If the colour you put on the paper was dark. Wash the brush and get some water and then spread the colour Use a paper towel to remove the colour With this technique, you can paint beautiful clouds pick some colour with a damp brush, and paint. The less water in the brush, cause the darker colour Leave some places white. It can be random Gradually you can use darker colours. The darker the colours, the more carefully you should paint After wetting a surface with one colour you can add another colour to it
