Still Life on Still Life on Burlap Canvas Class

Painting Class taught by Clina Polloni. “A Colonial Kitchen”

Still Life Painting on Burlap

Still Life Painting on Burlap

I called this painting “A Colonial Kitchen” because it was done at the Riverbend Park in Louisburg NC, inspired by my dear friend of “The River of Yesteryears” festival.

Learn to draw and paint on a burlap canvas instruction:

  1. Draw the still life with a soft charcoal pencil from number 555 to 557 or 4B in the burlap canvas.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a heavy coat of acrylics to smooth the burlap, using Yellow Ochre and Ivory Black. Put attention to lights and shadows. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. They create a worm color that once you put the oils in the top, they look brighter.
  3. Continue painting with oils or acrylics with the final colors. Blend these colors gracefully to create lights and shadows.

Red Apple Painting Classes.

Red Apple With Leaves

by Clina Polloni.

Pure red colors, apples are my favorite fruit to paint. 

You can buy this painting at The Cotton Company or local business.

Or you can learn to draw and paint a red apple.

Red Apple Drawing

Red Apple Drawing

Drawing instructions:

  1. Divide your canvas in half with a vertical line. Red line in sample.
  2. Draw a vertical line to the right and to the left at equals distances from the center line. Draw another two lines for the bottom of the apple. Blue lines in sample.
  3. Draw an oval where you want the top of the apple. This oval must end at the vertical top lines. Pink oval in sample.
  4. Draw another oval for the bottom of the apple. This oval must end at the vertical inside lines. Pink oval in sample.
  5. Draw a line for the edge of the table.
  6. Following this basic structure, continue drawing your apple.

Painting Instructions:

  1. In this painting I did an under-paint of Yellow Ochre with a lot of water to be absolved by the canvas, using acrylics because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are continuing to draw with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.
  2. Now you can paint the background, table and shading of apple in acrylics or oils.
  3. Enjoy painting the apple. Put special attention to the blending of colors.
