Painting with Gold Leaf
Art suppliers offer several great inexpensive substitutes for real gold leaf. Various metallic colours are available nowadays and these can be chosen to suit your ideas and personal colour palette. This workshop offers you an opportunity to play with this traditional material in a contemporary way, adding a 'touch of gold' to your painting, guided by an experienced tutor. Gold leaves and flakes can be provided at additional cost. 

Pictured above are examples of the excellent and varied artwork created by Elena's students.

“Beauty is everywhere, but sometimes we are too busy to notice it. Or at other times we are locked within the limits of a conventional point of view. Let’s break the borders, the routine and ordinary. Let’s have a fresh look around, and we will be amazed by how different and beautiful our world is"  Elena Nikolaeva
