A Painting Inspired by a Poem.

Memories of a White House Landscape

Memories of a White House Landscape

This landscape was created for the painting classes. I wrote a poem about this old couple living in the middle of the city, surrounded by buildings. My office was in one of these buildings where I could see from my window the old couple. Spring of 1999. Raleigh NC.

Instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the house and landscape with a pencil.
  2. Paint the under-paint with a mixture of Titanium White and Cerulean Blue. More blue in the sky, white in the house and both in the landscape. The best media to do your under-paint is acrylics because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are defining your drawing with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.
  3. Paint the sky and clouds first. House next and landscape last.
  4. Enjoy finishing your painting. You can use acrylics or oils.
  5. Sign your work of art

Supply:

This painting can be done in 2 medias, Oil Paintings or Acrylics.

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.
