Oil painting 24″x 36″ by Clina Polloni.
This painting is about a girl concentrating in making butter. Children have always been my inspiration, portraying the innocence of their young life.
Also, my admiration for the beauty and history of North Carolina. Traveling through the mountains I admired the rocks formations and colors, from browns to yellows, greens, aquamarines and blues.
Clina Polloni is a contemporary artist born in Chile. 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 the people of North Carolina in their environment and activities, representing the colonial times and history of our state.
Instructions of how to do this painting:
- Start by drawing the girl and rocks setting defining the light and the shade. I draw with pencils, permanent pens and acrylics. Look at image.
- 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.
- Apply a coat of heavy gesso in the walls to create texture.
Start painting with oils in the following order because it is going to be easier for you:
- Using oils, start painting the background, stones, window, chair, floor, vegetables, etc.
- Using oils paint the skin, blending light and shade to the color of the skin. Paint the features of the face and hands.
- Paint hair, hat and clothe.
- Sign your work of art.
