Lola by © Helen Chierego

I love impressionist paintings of children especially those of Mary Cassatt and Monet. This is a digital technique that I have developed using Corel Painter; a stylus and graphics tablet.

Lola is my nephew’s daughter. I took her photo with a little point and shoot camera in very low light at my niece’s wedding last week. (October 2010)

    Lovely work—especially love your work on the fabrics—always my favorite thing to study in my art books, the way they make the fabric look so real. Have yet to be able to do it myself, but you do it beautifully!

  • Thank you for your thoughtful comment…Fabric is something I love to to look at in old master paintings…:)
