Dimensional Perspective 1 Vanishing Point.

How to Paint Dimensional Perspective.

Taught by Clina Polloni.

You can learn and do this painting class at home in this difficult time of the Coronavirus. Follow the instructions:

Dimensional Perspective Drawing

Dimensional Perspective Drawing

This autumn painting is illustrated by the concept of convergence. Which are lines that moves into the distance and converge on a vanishing point. Our eyes perceive the world around us in three dimensions. To create this three-dimensional effect, we have to draw perspective that consist on a horizon line, where your eyes are looking to a vanishing point or two or three vanishing points. In this painting we only have one in the center of the horizon.

Picture #1: Start by drawing the horizon line, draw a vanishing point in the center (mark with a red dot). From this red dot, start drawing lines to the outside of the canvas, to the left and the right. 2 lines for the base of the trees. 2 lines for the road. 2 lines for the top of the trees. Continue by drawing the trees following the perspective lines.

Dimensional Perspective with Human Figure Drawing

Dimensional Perspective with Human Figure Drawing

Picture #2: Draw a human figure looking at the horizon and start painting the autumn trees, road and grass. Painting the background images first is a lot easier.

Picture #3: Paint the human figure and sign your painting.

Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Drawing with Acrylics by Clina Polloni.

The Cherry Blossom Trees are in bloom! Let’s learn how to draw with acrylics.

This are difficult times for all of us, we have to stay home with the Coronavirus. Go outside, take your family and draw the beautiful flowers of Spring!

Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Instructions of this drawing: 

  1. Go outside, in this painting is the back yard of my house. Select the flowers that you would like to paint. Do a pencil sketch.
  2. You can start by drawing in the canvas with a pencil using the Square Grid Drawing Technic. Start by dividing your sketch or photo in proportional squares, then you divide your canvas in with the same Technic in proportional squares. It doesn’t matter how big is your canvas or if it is a mural, the proportions will always be perfect.
  3. Use your acrylics with lots of water because they flow better, impregnating your canvas, don’t leave spots without paint. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. They create a worm color that once you finish your final painting with oils or acrylics in the top, they look brighter.
  4. Apply a coat of washed Titanium White and Cerulean Blue over the area of the sky and a coat of washed Sap Green over the grass.
  5. Start drawing with Acrylics: Ivory Black: trunk of trees, house (including inside of windows) and details of landscape.
  6. With Titanium White and Yellow Ochre paint over house. Magenta for the flowers of the cherry blossom trees and Sap Green over the dogwood tree.

Girl Making Butter Painting

Oil painting 24″x 36″ by Clina Polloni.

Girl Making Butter Painting.

Girl Making Butter Painting

Girl Making Butter Painting

This painting is about a girl concentrating in making butter. Children have always been my inspiration, portraying the innocence of their young life.

Also, my admiration for the beauty and history of North Carolina. Traveling through the mountains I admired the rocks formations and colors, from browns to yellows, greens, aquamarines and blues.

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 girl and rocks setting 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.
  3. Apply a coat of heavy gesso in the walls to create texture.

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

  3. Paint hair, hat and clothe.

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.

Log Cabin Window in Perspective Drawing

How to Draw a Log Cabin Window in Perspective.

Painting Class Taught by Artist Clina Polloni.

Our eyes perceive the world around us in three dimensions.

Log Cabin Window in Perspective Drawing

In order to be able to draw and understand dimension, we need to look at the horizon. The horizon is a straight line at the edge of the earth where land and sky meet. The horizon is the view from your eyes. If you move, your eyes will move together with the horizon.

Select the object you want to draw, with a pencil and one eyes close, find your horizon. Continue by placing lines from the object to the horizon. You will find your vanishing points. In this case we have two vanishing points.

In this drawing the red line is the horizon. The black lines indicate the vanishing point of the stones (Vanishing Point 1) and the pink lines indicate the vanishing points of the wood (Vanishing Point 2).

Draw all these lines with a pencil first and them over the lines draw wood, stones and window.

“Flowers of Love”

Flowers of Love Poem Painting

Flowers of Love Poem Painting

Are oil paintings by Clina Polloni.

Inspired by my poem “An Instant of Time”, about love and flowers:

Love like flowers
is a fragile breeze;
it is a flash of time,
born on a clear day,
explodes in magnificent
colors and feelings,
and diminish in the
shadows of life.

Poem by Clina Polloni ©

Flowers of Love Poem Drawing

Flowers of Love Poem Drawing

After the cold days of winter. I can’t wait for the warm days of spring to see the pale daffodils or the purple irises emerging, green baby leaves appearing in the old oak tree and finally a rainbow of colors; camellias, geraniums, tulips, peonies, crape myrtles, dahlias, roses and pansies. I get my canvas, brushes, bright colors and go outside, seat in the purple chair and paint. I live in Franklinton, NC, USA, travel to Chile to see my family and also paint.

Instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the poem with a medieval calligraphy. The first letter of the poem is at the right side with a gold background and decorated with flowers.
  2. Draw flowers around the poem.
  3. Create a border with gold and heavy gesso.
  4. Paint with acrylics or oils.
