Araucana Hen Pet Portrait.

Oil on canvas by Clina Polloni.

This is my pet chicken; she runs happy in the yard with her feathers flying in the wind. The Araucana is a breed of domestic chicken from Chile. Its name derives from the Araucanía region of Chile where it is believed to have originated. It lays blue-shelled eggs, one of very few breeds that do so.

Girl Making Butter NC Postcard

This painting is about a girl concentrating in making butter. Children have always been my inspiration, portraying the innocence of their young life.

Also, my admiration for the beauty and history of North Carolina. Traveling through the mountains I admired the rocks formations and colors, from browns to yellows, greens, aquamarines and blues.

Girl Making Butter Painting

This painting is about a girl concentrating in making butter. Children have always been my inspiration, portraying the innocence of their young life.

Also, my admiration for the beauty and history of North Carolina. Traveling through the mountains I admired the rocks formations and colors, from browns to yellows, greens, aquamarines and blues.

Clina Polloni is a contemporary artist born in Chile. Her oil paintings are inspired by her love for people, animals and nature. Her new project: “The motif of the human figure in a dialogue with natures light and colors.” In these new paintings she is portraying the people of North Carolina in their environment and activities, representing the colonial times and history of our state.

Instructions of how to do this painting:

  1. Start by drawing the girl and rocks setting defining the light and the shade. Look at image.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of acrylic gold and silver. 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. Apply a coat of heavy gesso in the walls to create texture.

I am doing a collection of paintings of  ”Colonial People of North Carolina”. Inspired by the historical sites that we had visited with my husband Thom. I have a great admiration of the pioneers that came to this land, with dreams and hopes of a new home in North Carolina. Life was so difficult, they had to clear the forest to plant their food. Built their homes and provide their families with a productive and healthy life.

Gold Labrador Oil Pet Portrait of Buffy

Learn to Paint A Pet Portrait. Progression and Supply.

By Artist Clina Polloni.

Gold Labrador Retriever Portrait

Gold Labrador Retriever Portrait

Buffy was a Gold Labrador Retriever.

When I was commissioned to paint Buffy’s oil Pet Portrait, I was fascinated by the beauty of this Gold Labrador Retriever. The expression of her eyes was all about love and caring for her family.  Painting her eyes and the many colors of his hair was a wonderful experience. I put her in a background of white snow because she loved to play in it.

Canvas: 16″x 20″

Instructions and Progression:

  1. Draw and paint the under-paint: It was done in acrylics because they dry faster and it gives you the opportunity to paint immediately. Use Raw Sienna mixed with Titanium White.
  2. Paint the background: Start by painting the snow using oil painting.
  3. Start up with Buffy’s face: Put special detail in the eyes, hair and nose. It will give you a better understanding of her features.
  4. Paint Buffy’s body: Taking advantage of the texture and the many gold tones of her hair.

The Gourd Artist Painting

Oil painting on canvas 24″x30″ by Clina Polloni.

“The Gourd Artist”

The Gourd Artist

The Gourd Artist

This oil painting is in honor to all the gourd artists of North Carolina that works their craft in silence.

Gourds by Deb Allen and Clina Polloni Allen.

Clina Polloni is a contemporary artist born in Chile. Her oil paintings are inspired by her love for people, animals and nature. Her new project: “The motif of the human figure in a dialogue with natures light and colors.” In these new paintings she is portraying the people of North Carolina in their environment and activities, representing history in the arts of our state.

Instructions of how to do this painting:

  1. Start by drawing the artist and the gourds defining the light and the shade.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of acrylics using raw sienna with white and colors that are going to be helpful when painting with oils. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are drawing with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting. The imprimaturais an initial stain of color painted on the canvas. It provides a transparent, toned ground, which will allow light falling onto the painting to reflect through the paint layers.

Start painting with oils in the following order because it is going to be easier for you:

  1. Using oils, start painting the objects that are in the back ground of the artist.
  2. Using oils paint the artist, his wicker hat, hands and overalls.
  3. Paint the gourds, flowers and hot peppers.
  4. Sign your work of art.
