Chinese Brush Painting: China in Blue, Green and Gold

On this course we will explore four beautiful subjects using wonderful deep mineral colours and gold ink. Subjects include: Bronze Vessels - a variety of different shaped and patterned vessels can be painted, and using layers of different colours and highlight techniques we will create a wonderful Bronze effect. Landscape with Blue and Green - landscape paintings in blue and green originate from the Tang Dynasty 618 - 907AD. We will paint mountains, with lake, trees, and a lookout Pagoda. Peony with Gold - Peonies are the King of Flowers in China and we will paint these in freestyle then outline and enhance with gold ink. White Lotus on gold paper - Julia will provide each student with two sheets of gold paper (no charge) and we will paint the serene White Lotus on this - the effect is enchanting. After covering the ‘essentials’ for those new to this art form, Julia will demonstrate the painting subjects and provide individually tailored support throughout the course. She will bring along photos and books for your inspiration and also provide detailed, step by step, illustrated lesson notes for you to take home so you can continue your practice. Julia will provide loan equipment for the duration of the course.

Having been solely dedicated to this art form for over 13 years, she has studied with both Chinese Masters and the most renowned CBP artists in the UK.
