Creating Luminous Flowers in Oil
12 - 18 JAN 2020
8.30 AM - 4.00 PM

This workshop is suitable for all skill levels with at least the basic knowledge of oil painting and colour.  Marcel will reveal his secrets of creating exquisite luminous flower paintings using his signature layering techniques through demonstrations and guidance through the techniques.

Learn to paint layers using alkyd-resin and oil, build a 3D impression from a 2D monochrome or colour layer to full colour from an underpainting.  Balance tones for a harmonious outcome and create a unique personal composition for your painting.  You will also learn how to create optical effects by glazing with multiple transparent layers of colour.
