• TOPIC: “WATERGARDENS & Concertina Book”

This is an experimental workshop, based on watercolor and calligraphy basics.
We will work on a final texture and then format and bind this in a concertina, or “acordeon”. Then, we ́ll make a box to keep it safe.
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 (we add diffrent tools, I use ruling pens)
