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  Yellow Ochre acrylic and Titanium White. 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 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.
  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.
