Discover a new way to look at our natural landscape and seascape when painting with oil. You will learn special techniques like sgraffito, layering and glazing, as well as applying different textures across the painting which will result in an intricate and, at the same time, an atmospheric representation of our natural environment. We will practice our techniques on a variety of subjects like gentle rolling waves on the beach, maybe a big surf, headland and rocks, lush inland landscape, and why not the beautiful dry outback. Capture the transparency, colour and texture of water or land using the right brush strokes, translucence layers, opacity of colours. and mediums to produce highly realistic effects.

Marcel was born in Quebec, Canada and is now living in Landsborough. He is the founder and director of Bienarte Art School in Brisbane. His research for the ultimate oil painting technique leads him to the Renaissance Masters. Marcel has been painting and teaching those methods for over 40 years.
