Workshops | Lace Painting
Thursday 25 February 2016
Try your hand at painting lace in oils!
Not for the faint-hearted, absolute beginners or people with bad eyesight. But if you dare then join me! We will warm up with drawing some lace patterns in pencil and then moving on to paint. I will demonstrate how I go about things and different ways to approach the subject. We will work on one small painting for a couple of hours, trying to keep things thin and light. We will touch upon pattern, values, mixing and materials. I will provide small pieces of lace to work from, or if you prefer, photographs of lace. Spend a day concentrating on intricate patterns and refinement!
I will provide small canvas boards, prepared with a dried background colour wash, for you to work on.
Please bring your own materials, but keep in mind that our working space is small. There is no room for large palettes! We share the kitchen (table) together. There are table easels available.
If you like, you can pay a bit more and I will provide materials for you to use.
If you prefer to work in acrylics or water-mixable oils then please feel free to bring your own materials.
