"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

Buffy Pet Portrait Progression and Supply.

An 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.

Canvas: 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.

Colors:
Titanium White
Flesh, Portrait Pink or Pale Pink
Cadmium Yellow Light
Cadmium Yellow Medium
Yellow Ochre
Raw Sienna
Burnt Sienna
Van Dyck Brown
Royal Blue
Prussian Blue
Ivory Black

Brushes, multi-purpose, polyvalent, from the finest 0 to 6.
For Oil paintings, the best media is Refined Linseed Oil with Refined Turpentine. To clean the brushes Turpernoi. Glass container to mix media.
Easel (a simple table metal easel is fine).
Paper towel.
Plastic plate to mix colors or a Paper Palette.

Portrait of Isabella de Polloni y Lepiani, Supply and Instructions.

My family is a family of artists. From generations to generations we had supported and embraced the ARTS
The original Polloni family were merchants and artists that moved from Italy to Cádiz, Spain. In this city Francisco de Polloni y Lepiani was born in 1733. he moved to Chile in 1752, starting the genealogy of the Polloni family in Chile.

As a present to him, I had created a sister in a painting, her name is Isabella de Polloni y Lepiani, portraying her time in history, her loving expression of the eyes and smile.

Francisco de Polloni y Lepiani story:
http://www.clinapolloni.com/geneologia/francisco_de_polloni_y_lepiani_.html

Instructions:
1. In this painting I started by drawing Isabella with pastels over the canvas. Defining the light and the shade.
2. Using oils I started painting the skin, blending light and shade to the color of the skin. Repeat the process as many times as it is necessary to create a soft skin. Follow by lips, eyes and hair.
3. Painted the background in deep colors to accent the face.
4. Finally her close with light, shade and two tones of blues, Cerulean Blue and Thalo Blue.
5. Sign your work of art.

Supply
Oil Paintings and pastels: you can buy them at Michael's, ACMoore, but again the most affordable ones are at Jerry's Arterama and their brand is LUKAS. You can also order in the internet.

Canvas: 12"x16"
.

Portraying The Opera Faces by Clina Polloni.

The challenge was to portrait in these paintings the power of love, an emotion that consumes the heart with a force that can enrage or excite, destroy or delight.

I PAGLIACCI by Ruggero Leoncavallo.
Heart filled with lust, jealousy and revenge turn laughter into tears.

LA CENERENTOLA (Cinderella) by Gioachino Rossini.
Two hearts, full of love, again prove that love does conquer all.

RIGOLETTO by Giuseppe Verdi.
The cold and twisted hand of revenge grips the heart of a bitter court jester.

The Opera Company of North Carolina raises the curtain on three Italian opera treasures that reveal the power of love, an emotion that consumes the heart with a force that can enrage or excite, destroy or delight.

These Italian opera paintings were created by Clina Polloni for the 2008-2009 Opera Season of The Opera Company of North Carolina. They were used by Polloni Design for the marketing promotional material.

Wedding Oil Portrait of Jim and Ellen White.

When painting an oil portrait, the most important thing is attention to details, composition, drawing, colors and blending.

It was Jim and Ellen White's 25 Wedding Anniversary. Jim wanted to give his wife a memorable present, a momentous of this important date. All they had was a wedding album with small photos. We selected a photo, and from that photo and looking at them today, the expression of their eyes, I created this painting. He specially wanted the flowers to be part of the portrait.

Instructions:
1. Cover the canvas with a light coat of Raw Sienna and White, using acrylic.
2. Draw the persons from the photo.
3. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of raw sienna in acrylics because they dry faster. With raw sienna continue defining the features of the face. The under paint is very important because you are drawing with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.
4. Using oils, paint the background.
5. Using oils start painting the skin, blending light and shade to the color of the skin. Paint the features of the face, putting emphasis in the expression of the eyes.
6. Paint eyebrows, hair and clothes.
7. Sign your work of art.

Canvas: 24"x30"

Colors:

1. Titanium White
2. Flesh, Portrait Pink or Pale Pink
3. Cadmium Yellow Light

Welcome to Clina Polloni Portraits Paintings where classic and timeless portraits of you and your loved ones come to life. I have been painting portraits for more than twenty five years and remain committed to creating for you the finest portraits in oil that I can. These heirloom portraits will remain in your family for generations to come.

https://youtu.be/j5X2y9yvBlc

The essence of painting a portrait is the expression of the eyes. Eyes express the spirit of the person, their personalities, what makes them happy and sad, and the love and caring for others and themselves.

When I start painting a person, I like to talk to them and to get to know them. Usually, I start from a photo. Nevertheless, by looking at the person, I capture their fundamental nature, especially through the expression of the eyes.

Commissioned oil portraits on canvas in Raleigh, North Carolina. Specializing in children, family, parents, grandparents, weddings, adults and official subjects. Cary, Durham, RTP, Chapel Hill and Wake Forest, NC.
