1800s Vineyards House

Learn how to paint a farm house in the vineyards land of Chile.

Painting Class Taught by Clina Polloni.

1800s Vineyards House PaintingI was born and raised in Chile, and in my memories, I remember country roads, traveling with my family through the beautiful vineyards land in the foot hills of the Chilean mountains. This painting is based in sketches that my great grandfather, Antonio Polloni did when painting the landscape of Chile in the 1800’s.


  1. Start by drawing the country houses and landscape.
  2. Give a soft coat of gold acrylic. Acrylics are very good for under-painting, they creates a worm color that once you paint in the top, the colors looks brighter.
  3. Next star painting from the back, sky, mountains, trees, house and creek with reflections in the water.
  4. Sign your work of art.

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.
