Commissioned Oil Pet Portraits by Clina Polloni.

Pet Portrait of Mr Parker by Clina PolloniThe essence of painting a pet portrait is the expression of the eyes. Eyes that express love for their family, always content and always ready to wag their tails. When I start painting a pet, I talk to their owners, I like to know all about their personalities.

Let me paint a portrait of your pet in lively and colorful oil paintings. All I require from you is a good digital photograph to work from.

The Market Girl, Oil painting of Hispanic Culture.

18”x24” by Clina Polloni.

The Market Girl. In the Hispanic culture it is a tradition to go to the market, where the local people brings 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.

The Market Girl PaintingI 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. People live in the cosmopolitan cities surrounded by malls and a variety of today modern stores. But the beautiful thing is that they are trying to preserve their culture.

This painting is being exhibit at the Franklin County Art Council, NC. For the 2018 5 de Mayo Celebration of the Hispanic Culture.

Clina Polloni is a contemporary artist born in Chile, winner of the 2017 Artist Award. 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.

How to Paint an Oil Pet Portrait of Griffin.

Pet Portrait-GriffinWhen I was commissioned to paint Griffin’s Pet Portrait, It was a challenge, he was at the ocean, when the sun was beginning to come down, creating a very strong change of light in his face. I took advantage of the beautiful gold light that accented his face and hair.

Canvas: 11″x14″.

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 a washed of Yellow Ochre, but be sure to saturate the canvas. Also you can draw the eyes with black acrylic. Look at image.
  2. Paint the background: Start with oils and paint the st waves of the ocean.
  3. Continue with Griffin’s face: Put special detail in the eyes, hair and nose. It will give you a better understanding of his features. Look at image.
  4. Paint Griffin‘s body: Taking advantage of the texture and the many tones of his hair. The hair was painted with a #1 pro-white brush using it sideways, look at picture.
