Using traditional Chinese painting materials Maggie will focus this course on flamboyant flowers such as iris, poppy and peony. She will demonstrate how to hold the brush and use it to create bold effects. There will be a chance to make use of the "hake" brush. Painting will be in the freestyle manner. You will learn to load your brush with several colours to create vibrant results. The addition of a bird or insect completes your composition. There will be a chance to back your paintings ready for framing. This course is suitable for all levels.
Maggie will bring a supply of materials for loan or sale.
