Painting with Emma Petitt

In this series about my education and teachers I like to tell you about my recently favourite teacher: Emma Petitt

I accidentally found her offer of a free class at the end of 2018. And in my excitement I joined every class in 2019 that came across since then:

Freedom lies in boldness (via Art is Magic)

The raw of silence (via J.Oliver)

The language of hands (via Art is Magic)

The most important thing is – believe it or not: I learnt that I can paint over. Really I did. Now. After 9 years of art making I not only know it but I feel it and live it.

I can t get enough of listening and watching her loose engaged lessons about the figure, the face and – now – the hands.

I have some assignments to fulfill over all recent and past classes. And here are some of my playful large paintings for you to cheer me up.



What I got from the classes?

Emma pushed me in the right direction.

oo reasured my upcoming belonging to paint large.
