Next, color the roofs of the buildings with a dark brown pencil and the windows with a blue pencil. Now, use bright colored pencils like yellow and peach to color the walls of the buildings. Then, color the Arc de Triomphe using shades of brown. For the Louvre Pyramid, use a brilliant blue pencil. Finally, use shades of yellow and orange to color the Eiffel Tower.
