This week I had a painting class with Paperclay Artist Lillian Alberti ! She is a fantastic whimsical Artist and I adore her painting. She seems to make her dolls come alive with the paint....We had a great afternoon painting and chit chatting in her Lovely Home...and she made a "killer lunch" !
I'm so excited because I think I left the class with something that I did not have before...I've never had painting lessons, so I didn't know about blending and shading....and color mixing is tough for me...I usually end up with "MUD"! I think I get the "blending" concept now...I just have to PRACTICE it!!
I sculpted a bunch of paperclay head and bodices...and Lillian painted one of mine as she taught me...So we made collaborative art...my sculpts and her painting ! She kept the first head and then she painted another of my heads for me to keep as a reference of what I learned...the one "dirty little faced" child in the middle is my painting!!!
