“Art is beautiful, but requires a lot of work” (quote from Karl Valentin)
And one question always remains: what are the characteristics of a panel painting / mural painting/ stereoscopic picture in order to become a good image, and how can my work be developed according to my mind? In my course, you will be able to work picturesquely in an intensely practical manner and you will gain new impulses for your creativity. This course is directed at artists who want to paint and look for artistic exchange. I will provide opportunities to consider images precisely and with a fresh view, to share texts, movies, music and other inspirations, to train observation and perception, and of course to reflect one’s own painting development. It can be painted in acrylic, oil and egg tempera on different formats and picture carriers. Upon request, there can be an offer for stretching and preparing canvas and for basic information about composition, perspective and colour theory.
