Helen Rowbotham hosted a workshop on the use of Brusho painting medium at the Club Studio in Townhill on Friday 18th May. Here are a couple of photographs from this fun day submitted by Helen and Annette Burgess.
Brusho is a unique painting medium consisting of transparent, highly-pigmented water-colour inks that comes packed in small drums which contain a dry, crystalline powder. They mix instantly with cold water to produce a painting medium renowned for its versatility.
Helen Rowbotham will be hosting a workshop on the use of this medium at the Club Studio in Townhill on Friday 18th May from 1000 until 1400 hours. To cover the cost of materials there will be a £1 fee payable on the day. The workshop will be restricted to ten members only.
For the Mixed Media workshop, Josephine will be doing a similar painting to the attached image. She will provide the painting ground which is a an A3+(20×14 inches) size watercolour paper, the reference photo, PVA glue, collage paper and tissue paper, masking tape, etc. The workshop will be like a “paint along with me” style where we go through the step by step way of painting the subject.
