The Classical realism

Airbrush & Mixed media Workshop

This 5-day class is unique in many ways. We combine the present and history to give you valuable lessons about classical paintings with modern techniques. Learn to handle and combine brushes and airbrush in a way you have never done before. We take you on a journey through history and  explain all you need to know about composition, values, colour palettes to get a certain “look”. Did you know that every respected Old Master had it’s own color palette? We try to come as close as possible and show you how to blend and add textures, clothes, in short a beautiful scene that tells a story…. Sign up for this adventure via

Realism should be the base for every good and self-respecting artist. Without a proper foundation you can not be artistically free.

If you know how to work with color, shapes, contrast, reflections and textures and create perfect transitions, only then you will be able to master any form of art in any way.

This workshop will be an introduction, not only about the airbrush, but also about art in general, we will explore different mediums and tools to achieve our “old masters” look.

We do work with an airbrush mainly during this workshop, but also other tools will be explained and showed, like pencils, erasers, brushes and even your fingers can create awesome realism.

The workshop is not about just copying pictures, but gives you a good insight on how to use these techniques in your advantage to improve any form of art and create your own world with it. Of course, you will also know how to copy nature after this workshop.
