In this online class with award-winning artist and New English Art Club member Michael Weller, discover how to capture Nature’s bounty by observing and painting 4 different types of fruit, one a week, over the course of 4 weeks.
Michael will discuss choosing a composition, comparing shapes, mixing color and painting thick and thin. In essence, he will share how he paints from life and observation, using big abstract shapes to convey the thing he’s looking at and discussing how he manages the painting process. Learn to simplify and be straightforward while discovering your own handwriting.
Some experience of drawing is helpful, but all levels are welcome. Expect lots of support and feedback.
Michael Weller studied librarianship in Manchester and realised early on he didn’t want to be a librarian. Life-drawing cheered him up. Later he did a degree in Fine Art and studied portrait-painting at Lavender Hill Studios and drawing and painting with the New English Art Club. In 2015 he won the Le Clerc Fowle Medal for a group of outstanding paintings at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters’ annual exhibition, and the Winsor & Newton Award for a painting at the New English Art Club annual exhibition.
What are students saying about Michael:
“Michael is a generous instructor who works hard to give his students as much help along their art journey as he can. I learnt so much from him and am so appreciative of his commitment to his students and the guidance he gave me.” – J.R., NSW, Australia
