These gilded paintings are like jewels -they catch the eye with the richness of the colours and lustre of the gilding. They’re reminiscent of Byzantine religious icons and they sanctify these beautiful creatures. Using imitation Gold leaf, you’ll get an insight into how it can bring a stunning new dimension into your art work.
As in all Kevin McSherry classes, he will demonstrate the process and all participants will get personal attention throughout the day.
To speed up the painting process, Kevin McSherry will provide a selection of photographic references and templates. He will provide paint, boards and gilding materials. Students will be working with acrylics only for this workshop.
Workshop will include:
- Preparation and composition
- Drawing the figure
- Painting the composition
- Refining and completion
Kevin McSherry is a founder member and former chairman of the Illustrators Guild of Ireland and has been a regular contributor of hand painted illustrations to the Irish Times and Wall Street Journal. His work hangs in the British National Collection.
