'Chinese Painting -
animals in landscape'
Maggie Cross.

This course is fully booked but waiting list available.
Contact Liz Bryant on 01993 704345 for possible availability.

Thursday 2nd August to Saturday 4th August

This course will focus on painting animals in the freestyle manner, using traditional Chinese materials. However your composition would not be complete without placing them in their surroundings and Maggie will demonstrate some ideas for this. You will learn the structure of each creature - whether it is a small squirrel or an elephant - making preliminary sketches before painting the animals in a few quick brush strokes. This gives them "chi" or liveliness. There will be an opportunity to back your finished work ready for framing. This course is suitable for all levels.
Maggie will bring a supply of materials for loan or sale.
Chinese Animals MAGGIE CROSS grew up in Hong Kong where she learnt to speak Cantonese and write Chinese characters. She later studied Chinese painting. Since she has lived in the UK she has continued to practise the art and has taught it for many years. Maggie has produced two books on the subject and is in the process of writing a third. She also exhibits and sells her paintings and gives talks and demonstrations to art groups.
