Rosemaling: The Beautiful Norwegian Art & Design Collection II, 63 pages
by Helen Elizabeth Blanck
Two books in one! Rosemaling flourished in Norway from 1700 to 1850, and the designs are still around, gracing old wooden trunks, furniture, bowls, plates, and many other wooden surfaces.
This gorgeous, classic art form is still being practiced today. Penfield’s latest rosemaling title combines two previous books by renowned artist/instructor Helen Elizabeth Blanck. It shows how to perform rosemaling with simple, step-by-step instructions helpful to the novice or expert alike.
Topics covered include bands or borders, scrolls, getting started, materials, color harmony, accents, and quick tips. Dozens of designs allow readers to create their own works of art.
