Additionally, the surface variation present in vellum results in a uniquely textured finished product. Learn very basic tips and techniques for painting on vellum, starting with simple exercises on vellum scraps. Margaret discusses how paint and vellum work together and demonstrations building color and form. Finish by painting a simple drawing on vellum.
Please bring your lunch.
A 5" x 7" piece of calfskin vellum (a natural product) can be purchased from the instructor for approximately $25, payable the day of class.
If you already have a piece of vellum, please bring it to class. If you want to purchase one prior to class, please be sure it is the true, natural product, and not vellum finish tracing paper or illustration board.
