Gilded Flowers
During this workshop we will examine the Art of depicting the form, colour, and details of flowers. There has recently been a resurgence of nature and botanical illustration in Fine Art. Very popular in the Victorian era, the detailed study of flowers and natural forms, signalled a reaction to the industrial revolution, with the work of artists such as William Morris. Gold/silver leaf was often added to these detailed studies for its opulent and shimmering qualities. During this 2 day workshop you will learn how to improve your drawing skills as well as learning new techniques of gilding (applying gold leaf) - day 1. On the 2nd day you will apply oil paint to your gold leaf panel and learn about colour mixing/application in relation to a selected flower. By the end of the 2 days you will have completed your own gilded flower painting. I will demonstrate at appropriate stages throughout the 2 day workshop, and will be available with advice and suggestions. This workshop is mainly aimed at participants with some experience of drawing/painting (though it is not necessary to have used oil paint previously).
