Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Drawing with Acrylics by Clina Polloni.

This are difficult times for all of us, we have to stay home with the Coronavirus. Go outside, take your family and draw the beautiful flowers of Spring!

Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Instructions of this drawing: 

  1. Go outside, in this painting is the back yard of my house. Select the flowers that you would like to paint. Do a pencil sketch.
  2. You can start by drawing in the canvas with a pencil using the Square Grid Drawing Technic. Start by dividing your sketch or photo in proportional squares, then you divide your canvas in with the same Technic in proportional squares. It doesn’t matter how big is your canvas or if it is a mural, the proportions will always be perfect.
  3. Use your acrylics with lots of water because they flow better, impregnating your canvas, don’t leave spots without paint. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. They create a worm color that once you finish your final painting with oils or acrylics in the top, they look brighter.
  4. Apply a coat of washed Titanium White and Cerulean Blue over the area of the sky and a coat of washed Sap Green over the grass.
  5. Start drawing with Acrylics: Ivory Black: trunk of trees, house (including inside of windows) and details of landscape.
  6. With Titanium White and Yellow Ochre paint over house. Magenta for the flowers of the cherry blossom trees and Sap Green over the dogwood tree.

Poem:

“Memories of a White House”

White was the house
green were the trees
memories of a long life left behind
the noise of activity, every day rush was gone…
long ago.

The only thing left was the old couple
in the silence of age,
embraced on a clear spring morning
by the friendly music of their birds
and the bright colors of fresh flowers.

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.
