E-PAINTING PATTERN - Landscape  Painting Lesson - Mink Creek Barn - Oil Painting Pattern by Artist Donna H. Richards




Media: OIL

Mink Creek Barn is an oil painting pattern for the artist who is first starting out using an oil media. Artist Donna Richards first explains to the student artist some of the fundamentals about working with oils for the first time.


This painting pattern includes the step by step painting instructions and several photos that explain Donna's approach to this painting composition.

  • Using a wet in wet or Alla prima oil painting technique, Donna will help the student work their way through the design.
  • Using simple brush mixing skills for creating a wide variety of green hues, this country landscape painting is sure to help tha artist learn about painting the effects of old barn wood, trees and foliage.
  • The lesson also includes reference for painting simple animal shapes and of course the step by step details for creating the much loved farm icon...the working country barn and farm tractor.  


Alla Prima technique, meaning that the painting is completed in one sitting, so the paints are thinned out a little bit with a medium that will speed drying time. Some people love the ease of manipulation and the slow drying time which is convenient when you need to rework sections, or want to scrape paint off from a part that has not turned out well. Other people find those very things are obstacles for them. But as with everything else, as you gain experience you learn to work with your materials and more fully appreciate the good things about them.

Discover the wet in wet painting technique that will help you paint faster and with greater ease.
