One of the things I love to do is decorative work. I trained at L'atelier Guigue in Paris, a place which specialises in traditional painting on wood. (Wonderful painted furniture there.) www.atelier-guigue.fr
Here is an example of my decorative work. This one is on paper. I used water colour, colour pencils and white gouache for the details. I was inspired by a traditional Russian pattern. I could see it as a design on a plate or on a piece of wooden furniture, or even as a template for embroidery.
