CLASS INFORMATION

ABOUT HERMAN PEKEL 

Herman is an entertaining and passionate master of hermanpekel_enpleinair
Australian impressionism with an energetic teaching style and infectious sense of humour. He excels in the mediums of watercolour, acrylic and oil and frequently applies nontraditional painting methods. Herman’s passion is the ‘freedom of spontaneity’ when working en plein air in order to capture the fleeting glow and subtle shifts of light across the landscape.

With a Fine Arts degree from RMIT and a Diploma of Teaching from Melbourne University he has won the Camberwell Rotary’s Gold Medal Watercolour Prize in 1989, 1993, 1995 and 2006 and been a finalist in Camberwell’s Travel Scholarship award.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Herman will cover all aspects of successful painting using frequent demonstrations and detailed analysis. Beginning with simpler compositions you will learn how to recognise major shapes, understand tone, place figures in your work and master techniques from dry brush to wet in wet.

The workshop is limited to 12 intermediate to advanced participants.
