Description

Workshop Detail

This workshop is for all who have an interest in Chinese Brush Painting, both beginners and those with some experience. After quickly learning about the traditional materials, Anne will demonstrate how to paint large flowers by filling a large brush with several colours at once. Anne will take the poppy, peony and iris as examples, incorporating bees and butterflies. You will then paint your own examples using examples supplied by Anne. She will also have examples of compositions of these flowers and others for you to work from. The paintings above are just for illustration. Anne will give personal one-to-one assistance throughout the day.
