In class we will go over the basic technique and history of this decorative style. We will practice the fundamental painting process using oil paint on paper. All painting materials and basic Gudbrandsdal patterns will be supplied by the instructor. At the end of class, you’ll go home with Gudbrandsdal Style worksheets.
