PAPER+WATER+PIGMENT
Feathers and plumes - H2O1117
Milan, 25/26 November 2017
Silvia Molinari


It is a workshop for those who love paper, the work of graphite, nature and, obviously, the technique of watercolour.

Dedicated to those who announce the arrival of fine weather  and the renewal of the earth: birds, sparrows.

Those that return in Spring, soaring and diving through the air, but also those that fill our skies throughout the rest of the year.

Swallows, blue tits, finches, robins, wrens, chimney sweeps...bringing songs, colours and movement.

Starting with photographic images, Silvia Molinari will guide us in the choice of subjects and of the suitable cotton paper, the preparations of the canvas, considering their weight and balance; we will begin with a correct pencil drawing, following the rules of proportion; we will learn to choose the best brushes, to measure out and mix colours and water, in order to reproduce the softness of birds' plumage and  their agility in flight
