Participants in this course will study a selection of images of beautiful 17th Century flower paintings from the Dutch Golden Age, one of their highest expressions in the history of art. You will then paint a single flower, interpreting the image in the medium of egg tempera working on a gesso ground. Then a larger composition shall be undertaken, either an original one or taken from an image from the 17th century. This shall be painted on a gessoed panel.

In this course students shall learn about the method and techniques of egg tempera, including working in layers from dark to light, fine brush work, dry brush and glazing.
