Gold Labrador Oil Pet Portrait of Buffy

Learn to Paint A Pet Portrait. Progression and Supply.

By Artist Clina Polloni.

Gold Labrador Retriever Portrait

Gold Labrador Retriever Portrait

Buffy was a Gold Labrador Retriever.

When I was commissioned to paint Buffy’s oil Pet Portrait, I was fascinated by the beauty of this Gold Labrador Retriever. The expression of her eyes was all about love and caring for her family.  Painting her eyes and the many colors of his hair was a wonderful experience. I put her in a background of white snow because she loved to play in it.

Canvas: 16″x 20″

Instructions and Progression:

  1. Draw and paint the under-paint: It was done in acrylics because they dry faster and it gives you the opportunity to paint immediately. Use Raw Sienna mixed with Titanium White.
  2. Paint the background: Start by painting the snow using oil painting.
  3. Start up with Buffy’s face: Put special detail in the eyes, hair and nose. It will give you a better understanding of her features.
  4. Paint Buffy’s body: Taking advantage of the texture and the many gold tones of her hair.

Red Geraniums on a Red House

Red Geraniums on a Red House

This is a simple painting designed for the painting classes. Learn to paint an old red house in the mountains of North Carolina, adorned with bright red geraniums in the front.

Instructions of how to do this painting:

  1. Start by drawing the window, the old wood of walls and finally the geraniums in the pot. Put attention to the cracks of the wood.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of acrylics, they 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 imprimatura is 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.

House in the Island of NC Painting

Painting Class taught by Clina Polloni.

“House in the Island of North Carolina”

House in the Island of NC

House in the Island of NC

This painting was created for the painting classes, is a simple and charming painting for a person that is starting to paint and wants to learn about the ocean, reflections of a sailing boat and most important the little house in the cliff of the sand dunes.

Supply: This painting can be done in 2 medias, Oil Paintings or Acrylics:

Acrylics: You can buy them at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. There are many brands of acrylic paintings that I have tested but the one that I like the most is SOHO, Urban Artistic Acrylic: Excellent paintings, sold at more reasonable price by Jerry’s Arterama. 3060 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC 27609. (919) 876-6610.

Oil Paintings: You can buy them at Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, but again the most affordable ones are at Jerry’s Arterama and their brand is LUKAS.
