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  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.

Acrylics: You can buy them at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. Jerry’s Arterama offers SOHO, Urban Artistic Acrylics. Excellent paintings, sold at a more reasonable price. 3060 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC 27609. (919) 876-6610.

Flowers of Love Poem

“Flowers of Love”

Flowers of Love Poem Painting

Flowers of Love Poem Painting

Are oil paintings by Clina Polloni.

Inspired by my poem “An Instant of Time”, about love and flowers:

Love like flowers
is a fragile breeze;
it is a flash of time,
born on a clear day,
explodes in magnificent
colors and feelings,
and diminish in the
shadows of life.

Poem by Clina Polloni ©

Flowers of Love Poem Drawing

Flowers of Love Poem Drawing

After the cold days of winter. I can’t wait for the warm days of spring to see the pale daffodils or the purple irises emerging, green baby leaves appearing in the old oak tree and finally a rainbow of colors; camellias, geraniums, tulips, peonies, crape myrtles, dahlias, roses and pansies. I get my canvas, brushes, bright colors and go outside, seat in the purple chair and paint. I live in Franklinton, NC, USA, travel to Chile to see my family and also paint.

Instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the poem with a medieval calligraphy. The first letter of the poem is at the right side with a gold background and decorated with flowers.
  2. Draw flowers around the poem.
  3. Create a border with gold and heavy gesso.
  4. Paint with acrylics or oils.

Clina’s paintings are for sale at her studio, The Renaissance Centre for The Arts in Wake Forest and The Franklin County Art Council, NC.
