The Lady of The Plantation Painting, Instructions and Supply.

In this painting I was inspired by the historical sites, portraying the people of North Carolina in their environment, representing a time and history of our beautiful state.

Instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the lady, landscape and house.

  3. Next paint landscape, starting with the sky, trees, house, the lady, and reflections in the garden water pond. You can do it with oil paintings or acrylics.
  4. Sign your work of art.

Supply:

Acrylics: There are many brands of acrylic paintings that I have tested but the one that I like the most is: SOHO, Urban Artistic Acrylic: Excellent paintings, sold at more reasonable price by Jerry’s Arterama. 3060 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC 27609. (919) 876-6610.

Jesus With Samaritan Woman Painting

“Jesus With Samaritan Woman”. 

Jesus with Samaritan WomanI did this painting based on an old painting done by my great-aunt, when she was a little girl and my great-grandfather Antonio Polloni was teaching her to paint.

Jesus had to go through Samaria. So he came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired out by his journey, was sitting by the well. It was about noon. A Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink”. The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria?” Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, Give me a drink, you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”

Thank you Jesus for all you have given us,

Clina

Comice Green Pear PaintingThis painting was created for the painting classes, is a simple and charming painting of a Comice pear. They are among the sweetest and juiciest of all varieties of pears, and are a favorite in holiday gift boxes and baskets.

Instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the pear, thinking about light and shade.
  2. In this painting I did an under-paint of Yellow Ochre and Gold with acrylics because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are continuing to draw with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.
  3. Paint the background first.
  4. Enjoy doing your final painting. In this case I use oils because I love their bright colors and blending.

Gold Labrador Retriever Oil PortraitAn oil portrait of a Gold Labrador Retriever.

When I was commissioned to paint Buffy’s Pet Portrait, I was fascinated by the beauty of this Gold Labrador Retriever. The expression of her eyes was all about love and caring for her family.  Painting her eyes and the many colors of his hair was a wonderful experience. I put her in a background of white snow because she loved to play in it.

Gold Labrador Retriever Oil PortraitCanvas: 16″x20″

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 Raw Sienna mixed with Titanium White.
  2. Paint the background: Start by painting the snow using oil painting.
  3. Start up with Buffy’s face: Put special detail in the eyes, hair and nose. It will give you a better understanding of her features.
  4. Paint Buffy’s body: Taking advantage of the texture and the many gold tones of her hair.
