As part of the programme of events for Flaming June: The Making of an Icon (Leighton House Museum, 4 November 2016 – 2 April 2017), Scott leads a three-hour workshop exploring the use of colour and fabric in Flaming June.
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. Scott will explain its properties and uses, demonstrate how to apply the paint as well as how to use glazing to enhance the vibrancy of the colour.
In the second half of the workshop, attention will turn to how to paint fabric, again inspired directly by Flaming June. Students will learn about the anatomy of cloth, where it begins and ends and how to render the folds to greatest effect.
The workshop will take place in Leighton’s Grand Studio.
