Ramona Art Guild recently focused on Lisa Bebi, a multimedia, internationally-known artist on the subject of the “Oversaturated Polaroid Look.”
Bebi taught the guild’s monthly demonstration meeting and the Saturday workshop in the community room at the Ramona Library, 1275 Main St.
Participants worked with their family photos to produce the look of old black and whites that have been hand-tinted in louder colors.
As a regular contributor to several art magazines, Bebi has developed a simple method to reproduce favorite pictures into unique and interesting works of art. The first step is to make black and white photocopies on paper so the originals are not damaged.
Bebi says, “Oversaturated Polarid Look workshop is my signature technique,” she said. “I love creating to express saturation and nuance. My subject matter is family photos from the 1940s-1950s, but any era works.”
