Wednesday 23rd October 2013
In this relaxed informal class you will master the essential techniques required to achieve beautifully layered one stroke roses, pansies, cottage garden flowers and more exotic blooms. We will look at the building blocks for floral one stroke work, practising the basic shapes for petals and foliage before assembling the individual elements in larger eye and cheek, wrist and upper chest or shoulder pieces. We will paint ourselves and then each other, exploring composition and placement for the greatest effect. Double and multi dipping, layering, line work and ‘cutting in’ techniques will also be used to complement our one stroke creations.
Attendees should ideally have some face painting experience (not necessarily professionally) in order to benefit fully from the workshop.
Attendees are welcome to bring a few favourite one strokes, some line work black and white and some brushes, but all of these will be provided, so there is no need if this is not possible. Brierley will also provide one stroke hand-outs to take home. Attendees should wear dark comfortable clothing with short sleeves, or sleeves which can be rolled up.
