Maggie Cross.

2018 Course listing coming soon.

Monday 24th to Wednesday 26th July
Landscape is an important subject in Chinese painting and is surrounded by symbolism. Maggie will begin by demonstrating the various aspects of the landscape - the trees, mountains bridges, boats and figures- in freestyle techniques before showing you how to develop them into a composition in the Chinese style. If you have a photograph of a favourite landscape please bring it along and Maggie will explain how to paint it in the Chinese style. You will be thrilled with your results! You will also be shown how to back your work ready for framing.
Please note: Maggie will bring a supply of materials for loan or sale.
