This 3 day intensive workshop based in the idyllic location of Exmoor, five minutes drive from the sea Lynmouth, will introduce students to the beautiful technique of Indian miniature painting.

 

Taking inspiration from the surrounding landscape and the Mughal art of capturing nature, in particular birds, students will have the opportunity to create their own unique painting.

Using traditional materials students will recreate their very own bird painting.

 

The first step will be paper preparation, staining and burnishing.

Next is an introduction to pigments, how to prepare the Indian palette and paint with them , using the traditional technique of 

colour flooding.

The final stage will be to create the fine detail, an integral part

of this style. For this, students will use the technique known as Prataj, or invisible shading, with the unique squirrel brush found only in India.

 

During the 3 days there will also be an opportunity to explore the surrounding area for inspiration.
