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.

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.

Pet Portrait of Brown Chow Chow

Pet Portrait of Brown Chow Chow

Bibo is a Brown Chow Chow.  I was commissioned by my friend Phylliss to paint Bibo. Laying under my feet, I would go “Bibo raise your head so I can see your beautiful eyes”. Her hair is brown but with beautiful copper colors.

Canvas: 11″x14″.

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 a washed of Yellow Ochre, but be sure to saturate the canvas. Also you can draw the eyes with black acrylic.
  2. Paint the background: In his portrait I painted the background in dark colors because I wanted to highlight her beautiful brown/copper hair to show well with contrast.
  3. Continue with Bibo’s face: Put special detail in the eyes, hair and nose. It will give you a better understanding of her features
  4. Paint Bibo’s body: Taking advantage of the texture and the many tones of her hair. The hair was painted with a #1 pro-white brush using it sideways, look at picture.
