*It's strongly recommended for beginners to learn the basics of airbrushing and select our Foundations Day!
Brand new projects for 2019!
What this 5-day course is about:
This course will explore the re-creation of a beautiful work from the Golden Age of painting. Focus will be on the pre-raphaelite approach and color palette.. Dru will apply his own innovative techniques to achieve the look and aesthetic feel of the Pre-Raphaelite painting masters.
This class will utilize mixed media, including acrylic applied with brush and airbrush on a new special canvas.
Who were the Pre-Raphaelites?
The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was a secret group of painters who rejected the traditions of the Royal Academy of painting in 1848, They sought more beauty, light, and realism into their work.
The airbrush, is a perfect blending tool, and is able to quickly alter colors that have already been applied. When combined with traditional tools, the airbrush greatly extends the ability of the artist.
