Composing natural looking structures in Breccia type of marbles and execution of the Breche Violette by Ger-Jan Nijsse 
 
This class will take you to the quarries to see what happened over millions of years. We will reconstruct with paint, 'The Breche Violette', some say the most challenging of all to paint! 
 
Marbling a good piece of breche takes time to study structure and composition. Master Italian artists who designed interiors for churches and important buildings were experts in putting together magnificent 'tableaux' of marble. Later, 19th century decorative painters developed other techniques in order to execute the Breche Violette, by not just decorating with a 'marble-effect,' but to reach an artistic level of the Italian marble designers. 
 
In painting we find so much joy in using color, trying to recreate nature, and by adding our personal touch in providing an extraordinary interior or finish. 
 
This class will focus on a step by step creation of the Breche Violette including: composition, structure and weight as well as how and where to use it. Most especially, we will focus on important aspects of craftmanship!
