This is a simple watercolour and pen project that looks really effective. You could draw this on a longer, larger sheet and create a wall mural for a fun party activity.

Add circular domes to the top of the long, thin towers.

Add windows and architectural details to the buildings - in this style of architecture details like zig-zags, circles and other geometric patterns are common.

Start to fill in the buildings with different colours of watercolour paint, leaving a small white gap between the edges of each building.

When the buildings are dry use the golden ink or gold pen to paint the golden domes.

Once this is dry, use the gold to go over some of the architectural details. You don't need to do all of them, but picking out a few will make the picture all the more striking.
