This class will be taking place in person at The RWA Drawing School Studio at the Royal West of England Academy. If government restrictions prevent this, due to Covid, this course will take place on Zoom.
This two day course takes inspiration from a collection of botanical paintings from Bengal, called “Fifty One Flowers”. Looking at the colour, texture and structure of flowers, students will be guided through the traditional techniques of Indian miniature painting, beginning with paper preparation[staining and burnishing.
Students will then move onto painting using pigments, which students will have the opportunity to help prepare. Using a variety of techniques, such as colour flooding, blending and detailed shading; synonymous with Indian painting; students will recreate a beautiful flower of their choice using images provided by the tutor.
All basic materials provided for this workshop, although we recommend bringing your own brushes if you have them, ranging from very, very small to medium in size. Samantha specifically suggests size 5/6 , 2, and some 0, 00 watercolour brushes. Please bring an apron or wear clothes suitable for an art studio. You may also wish to consider bring a plastic bag in which to take wet work home with you on Day 2.
Please note, participants may need to wear face coverings for the duration of the sessions. The RWA is able to provide one free visor per person for those who prefer them.
