My name is Brian Lipperd I came to Riaci to get my Masters in Painting and Drawing. I enjoy Teaching and with this new Qualification it will open new doors for me to teach at other Accademia’s. I have enjoyed giving workshops from Art Students League New York City USA. To Scottsdale Artist School Arizona USA. Sharing knowledge with other inspired artists has allowed me to learn alongside them. My Painting career has been developing from 1993-2018.

Painting-Drawing 7-Master Course 2018 (Student1)

Professor Berti showed me again on how to hold a pencil. I counted 12 different ways to hold a pencil. Also I learn that depending where you work on the portrait there is a proper way to make the design.
I think from my experience that Professor Berti is truly a master in painting and drawing. I have been painting for 25 years and I feel after studying with Berti I have so much to learn.

I took a bus outside with classmates to paint landscapes. I took some pictures of myself and classmates with the beautiful Tuscany land.



I walked around Florence taking pictures of building that I want to copy and to understand.



I took pictures of the landscape in Scandicci. I found a wonderful garden to make painting in.
