The Windmill

JoJoSunshine 01 Apr 2021

Painted with acrylics on 28 x 35 cm panel. The barn is very tough to create with acrylics, but I am not unhappy with the outcome. Adding a bit of red for the roof tiles like Bob suggested gives it really a kick. I know that this is not a popular scene, but I recommend to paint it. It will teach you a lot regarding creation from various techniques and the windmill is definitely tough to make it look right.
I hope someone enjoys this one.


Excellent texture. The Red roof tiles are fantastic!

The sky turned out great! Bob's technique needs a bit of adjusting to work with acrylics

@felix Well, an unbelieveable number of creations the past few months.
Ah well, the creations are no real beauties and are of less importance but what matters is that I get more and more practice and experience. Mu ushes, foliage, banks and mountains have all improved little to a lot!
For that reason alone, it was worth waisting sweat and paint!

Till next one!

@linzeepaints, thank you for the positive comment. I have updated this painting with more detail and am much happier with it.
