Chinese Brush Painting

This week is one of two longer courses which our expert Chinese painter Maggie Cross is leading at Ammerdown this year.

During the week, suitable for all abilities, Maggie will demonstrate the various components of a Chinese landscape such as mountains, water and trees, as well as buildings, figures and boats. You will then be able to develop these into your own compositions. You will start by painting in the conventional Chinese way, using line drawing with a brush and adding colour. There will, however, also be opportunities to learn from Maggie some more innovative techniques involving ‘crumpling’ and a variety of ‘washes’.

.Maximum number 12, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Participants will be given a list of basic items to bring with them. Traditional brush painting materials will be available for loan or sale from the tutor.

*Lunch can be purchased on Friday for an additional cost of £10

**Maggie’s second week-long course will take place on 9 to 13 October and will focus on ‘Flaura and Fauna’.

Chinese Brush Painting – Flora and Fauna

Please arrive by noon on Monday. Course at 11.30am on Friday*.

Celebrated tutor Maggie Cross returns to Ammerdown for her second week-long course of the year, suitable once again for people of all abilities.

You will be painting a variety of autumn flowers in both freestyle and the more detailed ‘meticulous’ method using traditional Chinese painting materials. Maggie will demonstrate these techniques and also explain the symbolism which plays such an important role in Chinese painting. 

In addition to flower painting, Maggie will demonstrate some African animals as she will have recently returned from a painting safari!

Maggie spent her childhood in Hong Kong, where she studied brush painting and also learnt to speak Cantonese and write Chinese characters. She is a member of The Chinese Brush Painters’ Society and the Society of Floral Painters. She regularly exhibits her work and also frequently lectures and teaches on the subject. She has published three books.
