____________________ Finger painting is a way to convey emotions, feelings and state emanating from the depths of a person's heart through direct contact of the fingertips with the color of paints and the canvas. What is so ingenious about the finger painting technique? Any person can become the author of the picture, regardless of age, gender, profession and social status. The disclosure of creative abilities bypasses human consciousness and takes a short path - "heart - fingertips."

"I just love people and I love life. I want to spread happiness to everyone."
Lyudmila uses an unconventional technique of finger painting in her work, its peculiarity being that the paint is applied with fingers or palms. Typically, each finger is used for a specific color. The technique requires free movement, involves experimentation in the space of a sheet of paper or canvas. Finger painting makes it possible to create exquisite works that are distinguished by intense expression and picturesqueness of color.
