White Adobe Church Painting

Painting Class Taught by Clina Polloni. Lear how.

 This painting was inspired by my life in Rabones, a valley of dreams located in the mountains of the central region of Chile.

White Adobe Church in Chile

White Adobe Church in Chile

I lived for 10 years in our farm called “Las Puertas de Rabones”. I was close to God, to people, nature and to animals. Memories of golden sunny days, enjoying the company of beautiful people with spirits as clear as the crystal waters of “Rio Putagan” running through the fertile land. I learned about their culture, their traditions and the purity of their lives.

Instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the church and landscape.
  2. Give a soft coat of acrylic gold to the church and silver for the sky. Acrylics are very good for under-painting, they creates a worm color that once you put the oils in the top, they look brighter.
  3. Next paint with oils or acrylics sky, grass, clouds, church, mountain and land.
  4. Sign your work of art.
