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.

The Market Girl Painting

The Market Girl Painting

“The Market Girl”: In the Hispanic culture it is a tradition to go to the market, where the local people bring their fresh fruits, vegetables and craft. This girl is proud to show her flowers and vegetables with her colorful hand netted ponchos in the back.

I did this painting when I went to Ecuador. Inspired by their colorful art and culture, very similar to most of the countries in South America.

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 people in their environment and activities, representing the American and Hispanic Culture.
