Beach Scenes in Oils | Marcel Desbiens

Beach Scenes in Oils | Marcel Desbiens

Learn to paint the frozen moment of a small rolling wave on the beach. Capture the transparency, colour and texture of the water movement by using the right brush strokes and variation between translucence of colours and opacity of the white.

In this one day workshop you will learn a quick and easy way to paint realistic representations of water – both still, and in motion. Marcel’s expertise and easy to learn techniques, developed over years of experimentation and research, will enable you to achieve instant results.

What will I learn?

Through step-by-step demonstrations and ‘hands-on’ exercises, you will learn how to:

• capture the effects of the transparency of water, using layering techniques
• choose the right brushes and mediums to reproduce highly realistic effects
• achieve the different textures created by water
• recreate the emotional value of water.
