Seascapes in Oils | Marcel Desbiens

Seascapes in Oils | Marcel Desbiens

Learn to paint the frozen moment of a gentle rolling wave on the beach with a view on the background environment, headland and rocks. 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 a realistic representation of water – still and in motion. Marcel’s expertise and easy to learn techniques developed over the years of experimentation and research, will enable you to achieve instant results.
