Farmhouse Art Prints

Brazilian colonial farmhouse art prints are a great joy to re-create.

In pre-historic times, hunters used nature’s simple resources to build  primitive shelters.

Circa 5000 BC man settled as agriculturists, early farmers. They needed more protection at more permanent dwellings.

The oldest log buildings date from 2000 BC. These early houses developed on and on and during the Middle Ages with masonry, and stood fairly unchanged until the 20th century.
During that latest period, farmhouses showed great changes due to technological development.

Farm-based processes and farm labour were replaced by machines and industrial systems. The old farmsthouse  had to give space to modern and efficient houses and buildings more suitable to modern farming methods.

The magnitude of industrialisation started to affect farming after World War II. It changed much the way man worked and the landscapes around.

In Brazil, south Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro country side and eastern São Paulo state have magnificent colonial farmhouses.

I think I need to paint more of those… What would you say?

    The painting is beautiful. I agree that these seem to be a great scene to recreate. They are so simple, yet so attractive. I am a beginner but I feel like I could successfully paint one of these. What type of paint or materials would you recommend to a beginner? Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you so much, Jamie.

      I believe the best path for formal trainning is: pencils, pen and ink, watercolor, pastels/crayons, charcoal, gouache, oils, etc. At least 2 years of each, leaving a gap of at least 6 months to start the next training after you have begun one.

      If you are considering computer art, do it after are you are at least intermediate in formal art trainig (playing around ok). Are you planning computer art?
