Together with the artist Gabrielle Reeves, we examine and revisit the landscape paintings in the exhibition! Setting off from works of miniature, the participants learn how to use drawing and watercolor techniques to create their own paintings, and employ colors to create an ambience and perspective, and to evoke various sentiments. This workshop takes us on a journey to discover basic drawing and watercolor techniques as well as color theory, mixing color, and application processes. At the end, we create paintings which provide a colorful and modern rendition of miniature art.
