Arts & Crafts Event

Pattern and design are an integral part of plant material to reveal this more clearly we shall be looking at the approach that Charles Rennie Mackintosh used to create his Flower Drawings.A bold outline in pencil followed by liquid washes of colour is the basis of his technique.Mackintosh combined his skill as both watercolourist and designer to create powerful images.Using this simple approach we shall look at his use of a number of devices to flatten space and recreate these superb images. Working with your own choice of plant material which may be way-side weeds seed pods or garden flowers we shall aim to produce two paintings.In the morning we shall explore the methods devices and techniques used and this process will allow you to create a more ambitious piece of work in the afternoon .The day will combine demonstrations with practical sessions making it ideal for students of different skill levels.
