This landscape was created for the painting classes. I wrote a poem about this old couple living in the middle of the city, surrounded by buildings. My office was in one of these buildings where I could see from my window the old couple. Spring of 1999. Raleigh NC.

Instructions:

  2. Paint the under-paint with a mixture of Titanium White and Cerulean Blue. More blue in the sky, white in the house and both in the landscape.

  5. Sign your work of art.

Poem:

“Memories of a White House”

White was the house
green were the trees
memories of a long life left behind
the noise of activity, every day rush was gone…
long ago.

The only thing left was the old couple
in the silence of age,
embraced on a clear spring morning
by the friendly music of their birds
and the bright colors of fresh flowers.

Cooking On An Open Fire NC Painting

Cooking On An Open Fire NC Painting

Oil painting 30″x40″ by Clina Polloni.

Click the images to view a large painting.

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.

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.

This painting is exhibit at the 2019 North State Fair.

Cooking On An Open Fire-Drawing

Cooking On An Open Fire-Drawing

Instructions of how to do this painting:

  1. Start by drawing the ladies and landscape 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.

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

  1. Using oils, start painting the background, stones and wall.
  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 and clothes.
  4. Paint open fire, cooking dishes and food.
  5. Sign your work of art.
