The Enchanted Meadow

The Enchanted Meadow

Draw – Gild – Paint

If you enjoy the Fairy Tale 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 the steps to create these whimsical miniatures. Fur details will be demonstrated using a watercolour dry brush technique that will bring these meadow creatures to life! Guides are provided for the animals but techniques for illustrating your own designs will be demonstrated.  One of the key objectives of the course is to hone observation skills and build confidence with drawing, painting, and gilding techniques. This course unpacks skills that can be built upon for years to come. There really are wonders to be found in The Enchanted Meadow.
