Ever wanted to have a go at gilding but not sure how to start?
I shall be taking some mini canvases painted blue with an outline of a tree to Birmingham for Open Studios on 23 & 24 September at 13 Greenfield Crescent, Edgbaston B15 3AU. You can add the copper or silver leaf.
Here is a selection of canvases ready to add the leaf and one already finished complete with additions in oil paint.
And you get to take your gilded canvas home afterwards!
You can also see my paintings and how I use copper leaf in my oil paintings
Birmingham Open Studios
Lux Gallery & Photography Studio
Delighted to be returning to Birmingham as part of Birmingham Open Studios. This time is always very special for me as I join my son at the lovely Lux Gallery in Greenfield Crescent in Edgbaston. Greenfield Crescent is one of those streets in Birmingham where the beautiful houses have been lovingly preserved and let to small independent businesses. Do come and explore.
Owen de Visser, my son. is a photographer and has won many awards; he also gives classes on how to make the most of your camera. He started Birmingham Open Studios as his contribution to the art scene in Birmingham.
I shall be the the gallery on 23 & 24 September with Owen and jeweller Glenn Campbell. Owen and Glenn will also be there on September 30 and October 1. Please come and support local artists and pick up a guide showing every one of the 169 artists taking part this year.
Open September 23/24 and September 30/October 1
