The Trøndelag rosemaling style shares a feature with its distant southern peer, Vest Agder. Flowers enclosed in leaves, painted with a two- or three-colored palette, often rule over scrolls in both districts. Minimal shading techniques and linework bring the designs strength and movement. A contemporary pattern based on included original color examples, suitable for a 10” plate, is provided but students are encouraged to develop their own variations. You’ll receive a booklet with information about both styles. The class will be taught in acrylics, but oil painters are welcome. Painting may be done on base-coated tag board or woodenware.
