2019 course dates May 19 - 23
Herman hails from Melbourne, Australia and is one of the most widely renowned and respected painters of our day. Throughout his career, he has won many awards and prizes world-wide and his work is regularly exhibited in the USA and China. BIG SKY ART is delighted that Herman is coming to our shores in summer 2019 and will be visiting North Norfolk for the first time.
Well known for his energy and enthusiasm, Herman can see a painting in almost any subject. He produces work of strong design and powerful impact – every brushstroke vibrant and visible. His love of landscape is infectious, and he brings spontaneity and passion to his tutorials. A master of all the watercolour techniques, particularly ‘wet into wet’, he likes to meet each individual where they are, and helps them to find originality in their own work through lectures, discussion and demonstrations. His workshops are the greatest fun and he takes care to ensure that all his students are not only improving, but enjoying themselves to the full.
With Big Sky Art, Herman’s subjects will be the wide unspoiled landscape, coastal scenes and villages of Norfolk. Students should bring their own images to work from in the studio should weather prevent painting ‘en plein air’, as well as examples of their previous work for his help and appraisal.
Herman’s watercolour course with us is an opportunity not to be missed, and early booking is advisable.
