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.

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.

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.

Still Life on Still Life on Burlap Canvas Class

Painting Class taught by Clina Polloni. “A Colonial Kitchen”

Still Life Painting on Burlap

Still Life Painting on Burlap

I called this painting “A Colonial Kitchen” because it was done at the Riverbend Park in Louisburg NC, inspired by my dear friend of “The River of Yesteryears” festival.

Learn to draw and paint on a burlap canvas instruction:

  1. Draw the still life with a soft charcoal pencil from number 555 to 557 or 4B in the burlap canvas.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a heavy coat of acrylics to smooth the burlap, using Yellow Ochre and Ivory Black. Put attention to lights and shadows. 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. Continue painting with oils or acrylics with the final colors. Blend these colors gracefully to create lights and shadows.

This painting is inspired by a Chilean song:

“Si vas para Chile”

Te ruego que pases por donde vive mi amada
Es una casita muy linda y chiquita
Que esta en las faldas de un cerro enclavada

La adornan las palmas y cruza un estero
Al frente hay un sauce que llora, que llora
Porque yo la quiero
Si vas para Chile te ruego viajero
Le digas a ella que de amor me muero

El pueblito se llama Las Condes
Y esta junto a los cerros y al cielo
Y si miras de lo alto hacia el valle lo veras que lo baña un estero
Campesinos y gentes del pueblo te saldrán al encuentro viajero
Y veras como quieren en chile al amigo cuando es forastero

Esta pintura esta inspirada por esta canción Chilena.
