Purple Splendor

RavenclawBlue 04 Jan 2022

Acrylic on 12”x16” canvas. I used Liquitex acrylic paints with slo-dri medium. I wasn’t super happy with how this one turned out - the last winter scene I did I found a good ratio of the slo-dri to the colors so the paint stayed wet for long enough to finish the painting. This one was more challenging in that regard. This was also my first cabin - much harder to do than I realized! Overall I’m not thrilled, but I don’t hate it.



Check the you tube for one-point and two-points perspective and try it with pencil few times on paper you will understand how it works and your cabins will improve momentarily.
Also you are doing very well with acrylics and you can keep the cabin to the very end when the rest of the painting is dry and use ruler to help you with perspective and sketch gently with pencil on top of the dried acrylics.

Thank you so much! I will try that!
