Workshop @ Master Scientific Illustration

5 April 2019

In collaboration with ‘The Fine Art Collective’* (Lennaert Koorman) I taught a workshop at the ‘Master of Scientific Illustration’ in Maastricht. The students welcomed us with great enthusiasm and their unceasing curiosity made for a great working environment. 

 

We started the day with some exercises, using graphite pencils and watercolor. These value- and color studies showed us the main tonal -and color relationships of the subject (a still life). Knowledge that proved to be essential during the final painting in watercolor. 

 

It felt rewarding to work with this group of young and talented people, who developed such a deep interest in drawing and painting.
