If you enjoy the fairytale qualities of illumination you will love this class! Students will learn how to design a painted Acanthus leaf foliate spray to surround a delightful meadow creature. Inspired by the unique and surprising miniature paintings in historic illuminated manuscripts, the student will be guided through dry and moist brush painting techniques to create these whimsical miniatures. Guides will be provided for the meadow creatures while the student creates their unique foliate spray. Unleash the magic!!!! Although this class assumes some background with watercolour and gilding techniques, any level of experience can be guided through these techniques. You will be surprised at what you can create!
