Live Demo - Insights into the Creative Practice | Marcel Desbiens

About this event

This is a rare opportunity to see Marcel’s glazing technique being applied on a large canvas!

Please do not miss this special demonstration on glazing with oil. Marcel has been talking about it for a while and has finally prepared a large canvas with the first two layers dry and ready to go for the final stage. Usually, when he presents a live demonstration, he doesn’t have the opportunity to show how he likes to finish his paintings.

This 2-hour demo will be very instructive as you will see in real-time the change of colours happening fast on the beautiful fabric he has chosen for the subject.

Who is this workshop suitable for?

Everyone is welcome! This is a seated event with strictly limited numbers.

What do I need to bring?

Nothing at all. But you're welcome to bring a notepad and any questions for the artist!

What is provided?

  • A glass of wine on arrival
  • A friendly, supportive and encouraging learning environment
  • Connection to the Bienarté art community

Course testimonials:

  • Marcel and Yasmin have worked tirelessly to develop Bienarte as the premium art studio to rival any other similar art school anywhere in Australia. With over 60 highly respected and talented art teachers and guests this group, in my opinion, parallels the Heidelberg School Art movement of the late 19th century! A fantastic environment with warm, friendly professional support and everything any budding artist needs to follow his/her dreams.Terry
  • I simply enjoyed all of the experience, and never fail to enjoy the presentation by Marcel. He has a lovely way of teaching.watching the colour change experience was particularly fascinating. I have painted for quite a number of years now in oils, and wasn't aware of the special effects which can be achieved in glazing wet on wet. It was a particularly inspirational exercise. Thank you so much Marcel.......Diana M from Carindale
  • A very informative demonstration that featured Marcel's creative process as well as expert technical/theoretical insights about glazing and colour theory. As a new student in oil painting, I came away with lots of learning I can apply in my own painting practice......Kate L from Wynnum West
