Blue Door in a Log Cabin Painting

Blue Door in a Log Cabin

Painting Class Taught by Artist Clina Polloni.

Blue Door in a Log Cabin

Blue Door in a Log Cabin

A log cabin with a blue door embraced by a pink bougainvillea from the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.

This is a simple paint designed for the painting classes.

 Instructions of how to do this painting:

  1. Start by drawing the log cabin, the door, the chair and finally the bougainvillea. Put attention to the interesting shapes of the old wood.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of silver acrylic. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are drawing with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting. The imprimaturais an initial stain of color painted on the canvas. It provides a transparent, toned ground, which will allow light falling onto the painting to reflect through the paint layers.

Progression, start painting in the following order because it is going to be easier for you:

  1. Using oils or acrylics, start painting the log cabin. Continue with the door, chair and stone floor.
  2. Paint the bougainvillea in the top.
  3. Sign your work of art.
