During this course we will be looking closely at the structure of the Mughal flower. Differing in nature to botanical painting, these Mughal images are representations of flowers rather than naturalistic or scientific copies.
Decorative in nature and almost always surrounded by a beautiful border, we will be recreating our very own Mughal flower painting, concentrating on colour and texture, along with the fine detail of the delicate petals and leaves.
The first step will be paper preparation, staining and burnishing. Then we will transfer our image to paper, followed by colour flooding and blending. The final stage will be to create the fine detail of the flowers and leaves, using prataj or invisible shading.
