“The painting was completed for one of my nephews, Anthony Mitchell. It represents the dedication, hours of running, and the determination of Anthony in his quest to become a marathon runner.

The Majestic Sea Turtle Painting

The Majestic Sea Turtle Painting

Has one of the most vibrant shells, with a greenish undercarriage. She is one of the three species that lay eggs on the coast of North Carolina.

There are only 7 species of sea turtles and six are endangered. Approximately 1 in 10,000 hatchlings live to adulthood. Depending on the species, it can take between 10 – 30 years before a sea turtle is sexually mature and can lay eggs. The female returns to the general area of her birth to lay her eggs after spending many years in open seas. It is estimated that a sea turtle lives as long as 80 years

Ballerina Dress Painting

Self Portrait by Labannya Samanta.

This painting is a self portrait of Clina Polloni student Labannya Samanta. The challenge is to get a perfect definition of light and shadow, creating the many colors tones to accomplish the folding of the close.

 

Labannua’s self portrait got selected and exhibited at the Bryan Center of Duke University. The exhibition will end at the end of April. Congratulations! We are so proud of Labannya, she started her painting classes with Clina Polloni when she was 12 years old.

Learn To Paint A Ballerina Dress

 

Instructions and Progression:

  1. You start by drawing and painting a good under-paint. It was done in acrylics because they dry faster and it gives you the opportunity to paint immediately. Draw with your acrylics the light and shade.
  2. Continue with oils, light areas first, then medium tone and finally shading colors. Blend these colors very softly to create a fine transition

Ballerina Dress PaintingBrushes, multi-purpose, polyvalent, from the finest 0 to 6.
For Oil paintings, the best media is Refined Linseed Oil with Refined Turpentine. To clean the brushes Turpernoi. Glass container to mix media.
