An educational and entertaining exploration of Ampersand Gessobord by mixed media artist and author, Brigitte Waldschmidt. (English subtitles)

This painting was inspired by a woman that was watching a procession in a small piazza in Italy. I am usually inspired by a particular subject, light quality, shadow pattern, or overall mood based on a life experience. When not able to work from life, I try to work from a combination of quick sketches, color studies, and photographs.
