Learn how to recreate a painting in the classical tradition of India in this practical weekend workshop. OArtist and tutor Minerva Huerta takes you through the process step-by-step so you complete a truly stunning composition and acquire all the skills you need to be able to paint in the classical Indian style.
After tracing on paper the composition of your choice you build up colour layers with water based paint and thin brushes, burnishing the image after each layer to get a smooth surface so the detail brushwork has better quality. You finish your painting by designing a biomorphic decorative border.
About the tutor: Minerva has a BA in Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins and a MA in Asian religions from SOAS university. She learnt this traditional technique from South Asian painters, which she incorporated into her artistic practice seeing its capacity for storytelling and great potential for illustration work.
