• TOPIC: WATERGARDENS, where calligraphy and watercolors meet

This is the perfect workshop to welcome spring.
The “watergardens” are the places where calligraphy and watercolors meet.
We will start from the begin. First of all we will paint basics, flower or natural gestures, to understand the different types of paper, and grammages for different works .
We will also explain when the use of a different type of brush is adjusted (Chinese, synthetic or natural bristle)
Explanations of lighting or shadows, why black or white is not used in watercolor paintings (almost often)
We will go on to design flowers or textures with calligraphic base.
At the end we will create together a beautiful frame portait
