Drawing with Acrylics by Clina Polloni.

Violet Tulip Drawing

Violet Tulip Drawing

Instructions of this drawing:

  1. Draw with pencil first to create a general composition of your painting.
  2. In this drawing I used acrylics Magenta and Sap Green with lots of water for the light areas and less water for the darker areas, be sure to impregnate 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.
  3. In this painting I did a border to make a more interesting composition.

Canvas: 20″x 24″

Acrylic Colors:

  1. Sap Green
  2. Magenta
