Casa de Paja, a straw farm house painting in Chile by Clina Polloni.

Casa de Paja, The Straw HouseIn the early years of Chile, even in the 1800’s, farmers planted their wheat in the fields. This was one of their most important source of food. They baked their bread in an open fire, prepared mote con huesillos and other culinary dishes. And when the harvest was all over, they built their thatched houses with straw.

I did this painting from a sketch that my great grandfather, Antonio Polloni did when traveling and painting the country side of Chile in the 1800’s.

Oil on Canvas – 36”x30”

Sunset in Bald Head Island, NC, Painting, Instructions and Supply.

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

When the sun sets in the island, a harmony of purples to oranges is an inspiration, is a vision for any artist to portrait in a canvas.

Sunset in Bald Head IslandThrough the years, the island has been a breeding ground for wild hog and fox, a nesting ground for loggerhead turtles, a prime hangout for bootleggers, a Civil War fort. Pirates, lighthouse keepers, Indians, river pilots, soldiers, farmers, and entrepreneurs of all types have come and gone, and yet, the island’s essence is unchanged. This can only be because the island itself is a living thing, with its own integrity, spirit and its wild beauty.

Sunset in Bald Head Island, NC, PaintingInstructions:

  1. Start by drawing, positioning each element in the canvas.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with gold, using acrylic because they dry faster, also in this painting, gold gives a rich color for a sunset. Draw the tree trunk and grass with black acrylic.
  3. With oils or acrylics, start painting the orange clouds.
  4. Continue by painting the grass and purple sky.
  5. Finish your purple clouds, paint leaves and finish grass with high lights of green and yellow.
  6. Sign your work of art.
