This is an art workshop for artists who are interested in learning to paint in the realistic style of the Dutch and Flemish still life painters of the 16th and 17th century. Participants will learn how to see, draw and paint objects in realistic detail. Laurin will teach the British, “Two-Brush” technique of how to make things look round and three dimensional. He will also share information about the history of realistic still life painting and its current popularity in the world market. In this art class you will also learn to create deep black backgrounds.
Laurin is an architect who has put his skills as an architect, in drawing, photographing, and observing to use as a watercolorist. He is a signature member of more than a dozen watercolor societies including the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and Southern Watercolor Society. His work in realism has been published in leading art magazines such as: “American Artist”, “Watercolor”, “Watercolor Artist”, “Artists Magazine” and “International Artist”.
