with No Comments

An amazing opportunity for you to meet one of Australia’s special Artists ….
Heinz Krautberger and have him cook a picnic lunch for you – while you paint in his ‘Bonsai Garden’ – not the everyday opportunity I have to say …… According to Phil Brown – The Courier-Mail arts editor and Brisbane News columnist ……….. ‘ Andre van der Kerkhoff aka Heinz Krautberger courts controversy….!’
I wouldn’t want to take that ‘nom de plume’ ……. away from him in any way as I first got to know Heinz when he was painting and exploring the World from the ‘Carlton Arms Hotel’ New York >>>> https://www.galleryand.studio/2017/08/21/andre-van-der-kerkhoff-dancing-with-dragonflies/
Now here is your chance to meet the man and sketch some of his most remarkable artwork …. with a difference | in his amazing and stunning – Bonsai Garden!

Sketching and Figure Drawing – the basis of ‘Life’ drawing or ‘Anime’ sketching

This workshop is designed to give you an understanding of the human figure and styles that will translate and enable you to achieve these goals!
You will have a time tested approach to managing the proportions of the figure.
We will get you experienced in working off the cuff – so you can position the figure to be mobile or standing – riding or running.
We will discuss abstraction of the figure to become just a ‘Suggestion’ in your painting.
