Learn to paint an 1800’s Country Scene from Chile.

Learn to paint an 1800s Country SceneThis is a simple painting designed to learn to paint a country scene, trees, sunset skies, reflections in the water.

I was born and raised in Chile, and in my memories, I remember country roads, when traveling with my family through the beautiful land of Chile. This painting is based in sketches that my great grandfather, Antonio Polloni did when painting the landscape of Chile in the 1800’s.

  1. Start by drawing the country houses and landscape.
  2. Give a soft coat of gold acrylic. Acrylics are very good for under-painting, they creates a worm color that once you paint in the top, the colors looks brighter.
  3. Next star painting from the back, sky, road, grass, trees, houses, and reflections in the water.
  4. Sign your work of art.
