Commissioned Oil Pet Portraits by Clina Polloni.

The 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.

I 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.

When 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.

Colors:
Titanium White
Flesh, Portrait Pink or Pale Pink
Cadmium Yellow Light
Yellow Ochre
Raw Sienna
Burnt Sienna

How to Paint an Oil Pet Portrait of Mr. Parker.

When I was commissioned to paint Mr. Parker's Pet Portrait, I was fascinated by the beauty of the gold tones of his tabby cat hair and the expression of his eyes. Painting his eyes and the many colors of his hair was a wonderful experience.

2. Paint the background: In his portrait I painted the background in dark colors because I wanted his beautiful gold hair to show well with contrast.

3. Continue with Mr. Parker'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 Mr. Parker'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.

Cooking On An Open Fire NC, A Portrait of People of NC.

Oil painting 30"x40" by Clina Polloni.

I am doing a collection of paintings of ”Colonial People of North Carolina". Inspired by the historical sites that we had visited with my husband Thom. I have a great admiration of the pioneers that came to this land, with dreams and hopes of a new home in North Carolina. Life was so difficult, they had to clear the forest to plant their food. Built their homes and provide their families with a productive and healthy life.

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:

1. Start by drawing the ladies and landscape defining the light and the shade. Look at image.
2. 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 creates a worm color that once you put the oils in the top, they look brighter.

Start painting with oils in the following order because it is going to be easier for you:
1. Using oils, start painting the background, stones and wall.
2. Using oils paint the skin, blending light and shade to the color of the skin. Paint the features of the face, hands and foot.
3. Paint hair and clothes.
4. Paint open fire, cooking dishes and food.
5. Sign your work of art.

"Jesus With Samaritan Woman" Portrait.

I 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
