Initial trials at home with sculpey - 1

I played around a bit with sculpey ... armature, greenstuff, sculpey, volume,  just like Mati Zander teached me. Puh, it`s pretty hard for me as a experienced painter to discover these things

Stay tuned for the next steps. 
Greetings, Steph

Girl silenced the world

To remember sometimes is not enough... We all should carry these thoughts in our minds, wherever we are, whatever we do.
Watch the video, understand it and share!

Munich 2012

Review: Workshop Munich 2012

Last weekend was my first painting workshop in Munich.
After a difficult start (first time speaking and teaching in front of many people), 
and a few technical difficulties, I began with the first of three theoretical parts.
Then I was showing practically my style of painting to the participants
in smaller groups. On all three days I followed the same patterns:
theory, how to use the knowledge, testing, experimenting, and finally
practicing in the several areas of miniature painting.
Light, contrast, my blending variant etc. on surfaces like skin, clothes,
metal etc.

On sunday, I showed the "Padavans" my way to paint freehands.
And I think, they all have understood it very well and are able to
use these techniques to their advantage.

The experience I gained in Munich will help me in the future very much.
I want to thank all the participants for their trust, their kind words and
the other reviews of this weekend.

Thanks to Markus (Malekith), the organisator, he did a really good job.

I also want to thank the monkey-crew from massive-voodoo, for
their constructive criticism... and for sure, thanks to the
muppet-delegation, bestienmeister and goatman ;)

I`m looking forward to the painting classes in the future...
