We feature works by contemporary masters who use colors supplied by Natural Pigments in their work.
The art of Lala Ragimov is inspired by the beauty and sensuality of her subjects that range from great opera voices to nudes and fruit. The artist was born in Moscow. In childhood, she studied art from the works of great painters in museums and from books, as well as from nature. Through art school and after graduating with the Master of Fine Arts degree from California State University Long Beach she has continually researched the techniques of the painters of Flemish Baroque and Venetian Renaissance through conservation journals and restoration papers. She is dedicated to using those techniques, materials and ideals in her work.
Lala used the following colors on her palette: lead white, lazurite (lapis lazuli), azurite, glauconite (Baltic green earth), verdigris, lead-tin yellow (Type I), madder lake, vermilion and willow charcoal.
