Taking place in Leighton’s Grand studio, where the artist painted his most celebrated works, this three-hour workshop, led by Scott Pohlschmidt, Director of Lavender Hill Colours, explores the use of colour and fabric in Flaming June. Students will learn about the cadmium family - yellow, orange and red - a heavy metal based pigment mixed in oil and predominant in Leighton's famous work Flaming June. In the second half of the workshop, attention will turn to how to paint fabric, the anatomy of cloth, where it begins and ends and how to render the folds to greatest effect.
