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

• recreate the emotional value of water.

Course testimonials:

  • Very enjoyable, learned a lot and came away with a painting I actually like that I did myself. Rebecca, Wavell Heights
  • It was amazing! I never dreamed we would be taking home our completed painting! I thought the best I could expect from a one day course would be to watch a professional doing amazing things in a demo and then for us to do some follow-up prac exercises. We did get the wonderful demo and then so much more. The techniques Marcel taught us do simplify the process and the ‘insider’ tips and hints cut down on wasted time. I came away feeling very inspired and looking forward to painting my next beach scene on my own - woo-hoo!! BRILLIANT. Thank you!..........Leanne D from Brisbane
  • Absolutely amazing! Marcel has allowed me to achieve results that I never thought possible. He is patient, organized and very clear in his explanations of the technical aspects of oil painting. He also inspires us with his beautiful work. More than anything he manages to encourage and assist each person without any element of criticism and always is constructive and positive in his assistance. It was a pleasure to start my artistic journey at Brisbane Painting Classes. S.Cunningham Calamvale
