The snow may still be around, but the sun is warming the ground and there are signs of Spring. On this course we will be using the traditional Chinese equipment to paint some Spring flowers, such as plum blossom and primroses, and other new life. We will also include a Spring landscape as part of our compositions.
On this course, you will be using the traditional chinese equipment of ink, chinese brushes and chinese paper to produce a variety of paintings on a Spring theme. This will include plum blossom, primroses and other Spring flowers, new life in birds, insects and a landscape.
All these will be produced using traditional chinese brush strokes
The traditional method of learning will be to watch the tutor demonstrate, then to copy a model.
The tutor will bring brushes and paper to buy, at a cost of up to £15.
Please bring any chinese brushes you may have, but please Do Not buy any from shops such as' the Range' or 'the Works,' as they are not suitable
Please also bring any watercolour paints you may have, (cheap tubes are better than expensive pans) and the tutor will bring the black chinese ink.
