One of Australia's best watercolour artists is coming to Newcastle. If you haven't had the chance to experience Herman Pekel's passion for all things art, quirky sense of humour and easy-going approach to simplifying your art process, then this workshop is a must! Perfect for watercolourists and those wanting to use acrylics in a 'watercolour' way.

This workshop will focus on creating landscapes that are loose and hold light. Herman is perfect for those that are missing 'depth' or 'mood/atmosphere' as he shows you step by step how to create good effects with light using tones and values.

This is a two day workshop brought to you by Artable. For more information and bookings please follow link here: Book Now

About Herman Pekel
About Herman Pekel
Herman Pekel was born to Dutch parents in Melbourne, Victoria in 1956.
The art teachers of Herman’s youth, Roger Webber, Ernest Buckmaster and Lance McNeill were all primarily oil painters, but the experience of painting with them on location left a strong impression on Herman, giving him the freedom of spontaneity and leaving him an intuitive painter, ultimately working from the light source.

Herman studied Fine Arts at RMIT under Dale Hickey and Jeff Makin. He was the winner of the Camberwell Rotary Watercolour prize in 1993 and was previously three times a finalist in Camberwell’s Travel Scholarship Award, winner of the 1989 Camberwell Watercolour Prize and also the Travel Study Scholarship in 1989. He has also won many other awards, including the Camberwell Rotary Art Show’s Best Oil in 2004, the Camberwell Rotary Watercolour prize in 1989, 1993, 1995 and 2006, the Camberwell Rotary Travel Scholarship in 1989, and in 1989 and 1993 he won the Alice Bale Award.

Herman exhibits internationally and his works feature in multiple art books profiling Australian artists.
