LAG program: Frida Kahlo 4/2/16 10-12, LCCC

Frida Kahlo's work is renowned internationally
as emblematic of Mexiacn national
and indigenous traditions, and by feminists
for its depiction of the female experience
and form. Frida Created at least
140 paintings, of which 55 are self portraits.
"I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality."

Today Jeanie Schlump tried to paint
from an old photo of Roger.
This painting went through a series of transitions.
Now it is starting to resemble the man.

This is a watercolor demo
done for the Senior class at the
Eppson Center.
Based on a YouTube video, thought this would get
everyone's creative "juices" flowing.

Grey is never just Black & White!

A common mistake made by amateur painters is
mixing black and white to make grey. 
I painted this as an example when I taught 
Beginning Painting just to show how
COLORFUL greys can be.
This has an under painting wash of colors
topped by dry-brush applications of texture.
