Colonial Sisters with Dolls NC

A Painting of People of NC

Colonial Sisters With Dolls

Colonial Sisters With Dolls NC

Oil painting on canvas 30″x40″ by Clina Polloni.

Every year in October “The River of Yesteryears” get together at the Riverbend Park in Louisburg NC, to celebrate the colonial times with representations of the life in those days. I was fascinated by these two sisters with their colonial dolls expressing their enthusiasm.

 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 sisters, dolls and stone arch defining the light and the shade.
  2. Colonial Sisters Under-Paint

    Colonial Sisters With Dolls Under-Paint

    Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of acrylics using 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 stone arch and trees.
  2. Using oils paint the skin, blending light and shade to the color of the skin. Paint the features of the face, hands and foot.
  3. Paint hair, colonial huts and clothes.
  4. Paint dolls.
  5. Sign your work of art.
