Our project starts with an arch big enough for all the details inside. Mark the vanishing point at eye-level, all the vertical lines will tilt toward it.
The stars are dark and shadowy so look for areas to shadow like the distant parts and the parts where walls come together or the bottom of the steps. Keep the top of the steps as white as you can.
Take your time and add detail to the stones with smudges and chips, Leave the spaces between the stones white for the mortar.
There will be more detail in the foreground, the front steps, and near walls than in the background.
