Original oil paintings by Clina Polloni.

 “The texture of the walls of the lighthouse was so interesting after years of restorations. It was a challenge and an inspiration for me. I am proud to add these paintings to the collection of oil paintings that I am doing of North Carolina.”

Bald Head Lighthouse, known as Old Baldy, is the oldest lighthouse still standing in North Carolina. It is the second of three lighthouses that have been built on Bald Head Island since the 19th century to help guide ships past the dangerous shoals of the confluence of the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean.

Tree paintings:

“Old Baldy with Laurel Oak Forest”, When a storm hits the island, the forest acts as a buffer. Oil on Canvas 18”x 24”.

“Reflections”, A Window at the Bald Head Lighthouse. Oil on Canvas 24”x 30”.

To paint the Old Baldy follow the instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the lighthouse.
  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 in the following order because it is going to be easier for you:

  1. Using oils or acrylics, start painting the sky with the clouds.
  2. Continue with the lighthouse and the trees.
  3. Sign your work of art.
