But Paola is not only a world-famous artist: she is above all a sweet, sensitive and very humble person, who has made available to the IG RESCUE CENTER ITALY his art, to help animals in need. Paola has also, together with her sister Gina, adopted from a distance little Minnie, a cerebral dog who does not miss anything.
ARABIAN HORSE ART
“My first encounter with the Arabian horse was love at first sight. No other creature is able to provide more inspiration and emotion for my art. Twenty years ago I decided to dedicate my painting activity to Arabian Horses as well as dog paintings and portraits. The charm, elegance and nobility of the Arabian race are something unique and the important cultural heritage behind this breed is so remarkable and this is another factor that has driven me towards a strong desire to explore this breed further, to be more and more involved in this pictorial activity.
Describing Arabian horses is not an easy task, a lot of study, dedication, exercise and strong passion are required to achieve good results. I love to represent Arabian Horses as they really are, do not exaggerate the main characters of the breed, show elegance, respect the perfect combination of elements that create a wonderful horse with excellent stamina, a beautiful horse but also a functional horse, my paint a realistic style requires a lot of care to achieve this.
My favorite painting techniques are the classic oil colors on board, canvas or paper - watercolor and a mixed technique of watercolor-gouache, then the basic technique of drawing with graphite pencil or water-soluble pencils an ethereal technique, essential that it adapts perfectly to the Arabian "ethereal" beauty of the horse. I like to paint studies on the head and horses for the whole body, although I believe that in the case of a commissioned portrait it is the head, with the expression of the right eyes that can better identify the "model" portrayed.
There is another very special pictorial production, which I called the FAIRY TALES ARABIAN HORSES Collection which is a mix of watercolors, gouache, inks, gold leaf and acrylics, with a different style from the classic realistic paintings, with many influences drawn from the wonderful tradition of Persian and Mughal miniatures. These works are very decorative due to the many colors used, due to the charm given by the use of inks and gold leaves, a mix of fairy tale, fantasy and realistic style, this type of paintings can also be applied to portraits of specific horses. In more than twenty years of pictorial activity I have also had the honor of collaborating with show organizers by providing original trophies for the championship classes, while my paintings and portraits are in the collections of the most important Arabian horse breeders, in all the world and Arabian horse owners.
For an artist it is essential to improve, perfect both the technical and the emotional part of his work, nice words of appreciation from my clients / friends have assured me that over the years I have reached an excellent level of quality, a maturity regarding style , soul and feeling but there is always a way to improve, develop new techniques to experiment something new but always respecting this wonderful breed and my "personal" style.
My dream is to organize (I hope in the near future) an exhibition to show my works, how my style and technique have improved in these 20 years of Arabian horse paintings and I would like to produce a book to show the best of my production also tells something about my passion for Arabian Horse Breed because Arabian horses are an infinite source of inspiration for me…. a vision of beauty, a vision of perfection, a joy for the eyes and the soul!
