The From Pigments to Paint free online series with Andrew Field Fine Art and Pippa Pixley, artist & illustrator, concluded this month with another exciting workshop. This time we featured special guest artist and master paintmaker Pip Seymour, creator of the Wallace Seymour Earth Pigments Range: a staggering collection of over 100 brightly-hued minerals to experiment with! The earth pigment palette is sourced from around the world – the rich, red Rudstone clay from North Yorkshire; Viviante, a blue ochre from the Black Sea; and exotic Cinnabar from the Tuscan volcano of Monte Amita – to name but a few.
If you would like to add real richness and depth to your work, then you will definitely enjoy trying these fabulous materials!
In this special workshop practicing artists demonstrated how they use these fantastic finds, discussed the fascinating origins and stories, and answered audience questions in this live zoom session. All featured art materials can be found at @artreqltd
