Inspired by the Masters: creating a flower piece
|Dates:||21 August 2018 - 24 August 2018|
|Time:||10:30 - 17:30|
|Location:||St Luke's Community Centre|
Compose a flower piece in the Western European art tradition, as late 17th – mid 18th century Masters would have done.
We start by visiting a museum and explore how Master painters arranged shape, shade and light to create harmonious floral compositions.
We spend the next three days studying real flowers, chalking under-drawings, then progressing to pen, ink washes and body colour, closely following the traditional artistic process.
