This workshop is for the artist who wants more freedom when painting with dye on silk. By treating the silk with a sizing and working on a heavier silk, a more painterly approach is explored to depict landscapes. Creative blending of colors will allow the artist to create dramatic, vibrant skies and landscapes. No gutta is used in this class.
