Painted Pictorial Quilts »
InstructionsI decided to use as a model a portrait of a girl by Tamara Lempicki who was famous for her portraits in art deco period in 1920s/30s. She painted with strong contrast which helped me find shading values in my interpretaton of the painting. Since I had only her painting in black and white, the choice of colours is mine.

What was your inspiration?
A portrait by a famous artist Tamara empicki
What are you most proud of?
Completing my piece has taken me quite a lot of time as I decided to practise some drawing and watercolour painting in order to understand how artists see reality. And unexpectedly I discover that I can draw and paint quite easily and I really like it.
And as usual I mixed my paints and dyes using only primary colours.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just do it and have fun.
