Folk Art - Chippendale Flowers and Hummingbird - by Gaby Hunter

This painting lesson is based on the Chippendale style of folk art painting. 

Thomas Chippendale was an English furniture and cabinet maker. He was a designer who greatly influenced the interior design world of Great Britain during the 1800’s. Chippendale himself was influenced by French Rococo in the style of Louis XV furniture and Chinese styles with latticework and lacquer.

As time passed, as with every trend, new styles of decorative furniture and objects emerged bearing some traces of the original ornamentation from Chippendale’s designs.

Often, the style was characterized by ornamentation based on organic forms such as motifs of hanging branches and flowers drawn from nature which had a little historical connection. This style remained influential to the present day.

In this painting pattern,artist Gaby Hunter uses the traditional Chippendale folk art painting techniques of layering transparent and opaque pigments to create dimensional effects. 

Learning Outcome

  • Learn how to work with a white under painting on a dark ground.
  • Learn how to control color intensities and values for dimension through the use of layering such as glazing and veiling.
