Log Cabin Window in Perspective Drawing

How to Draw a Log Cabin Window in Perspective.

Painting Class Taught by Artist Clina Polloni.

Our eyes perceive the world around us in three dimensions.

Log Cabin Window in Perspective Drawing

In order to be able to draw and understand dimension, we need to look at the horizon. The horizon is a straight line at the edge of the earth where land and sky meet. The horizon is the view from your eyes. If you move, your eyes will move together with the horizon.

Select the object you want to draw, with a pencil and one eyes close, find your horizon. Continue by placing lines from the object to the horizon. You will find your vanishing points. In this case we have two vanishing points.

In this drawing the red line is the horizon. The black lines indicate the vanishing point of the stones (Vanishing Point 1) and the pink lines indicate the vanishing points of the wood (Vanishing Point 2).

Draw all these lines with a pencil first and them over the lines draw wood, stones and window.

Log Cabin Window in Perspective Painting

How to Paint and Draw a Log Cabin Window in Perspective.

Painting Class Taught by Artist Clina Polloni.

Log Cabin Window in Perspective

Log Cabin Window in Perspective

Traveling through the beautiful mountains of North Carolina one thing that fascinate me are the old log cabins. The textures of the aged wood and stones that creates intriguing perspective.

This is a simple paint designed for the painting classes.

Instructions of how to do this painting:

  1. Drawing: You can do your drawing in two ways. Follow the instructions of drawing the perspective of trace it in the painting class. Put attention to the interesting shapes of the wood and stones.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of Gold or Yellow Ochre acrylic. Paint inside the window, outline wood and stones with Ivory Black. 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.
  3. Using oils or acrylics, start painting the window. Continue with the wood and stones.
  4. Sign your work of art.

Supply: This painting can be done in 2 medias, Oil Paintings or Acrylics.

Acrylics: There are many brands of acrylic paintings that I have tested but the one that I like the most is SOHO, Urban Artistic Acrylic: Excellent paintings, sold at more reasonable price by Jerry’s Arterama. 3060 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC 27609. (919) 876-6610

Oil Paintings: You can buy them at Michael’s, ACMoore, but again the most affordable ones are at Jerry’s Arterama and their brand is LUKAS.

Canvas: 11″x 14″ for tracing or 18”x 24” for drawing perspective.

Under-paint Acrylics:

  1. Gold or Yellow Ochre
  2. Ivory Black

Oils or Acrylics Colors:

  1. Titanium White
  2. Sky Blue or Royal Blue
  3. Yellow Ochre
  4. Raw Sienna
  5. Burnt Sienna
  6. Van Dyck Brown
  7. Cadmium Yellow Light
  8. Sap Green
  9. Greenish Umber or Deep Green
  10. Ivory Black

Brushes, multi-purpose, polyvalent. There is a 10pc “Artist’s Loft” that provides most of the brushes for the beginning or the Pro Stroke-Power Creative Mark of Jerry’s Arterama. Also Wal-Mart has some fine and medium gold taklon brushes.
For Oil paintings, the best media is Refined Linseed Oil with Turpernoi. To clean the brushes Turpernoi. I have some glass containers to mix media.
Easel (a simple table metal easel is fine).
Paper towel, Pencil to draw.
Plastic plate to mix colors or a Paper Palette. SOHO has a very reasonable paper palette at Jerry’s Arterama.

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 and white. 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 imprimatura is 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.
