Free the artist trapped inside with Herman Pekel

Unearth fresh and honest art trapped inside your inner artist and learn to capture it with watercolour and acrylics.

You will learn about colour mixing, glazes, composition, drying time, thickness and edges to create an impressionist painting you never
thought possible with acrylic or watercolour.

Expect to be challenged, to be brave, and to have fun!

Like many artists, Herman Pekel experimented for a time with abstract expressionism, but he is now well known for his oils and watercolours. Herman is an artist of energy and enthusiasm. He is able to see a painting in almost any subject matter and is capable of
producing award-winning work in oil, watercolour or gouache. Environmental issues are a great concern to Herman and his love of the landscape reflects that in almost everything he paints. He produces paintings of strong design and powerful impact – every brush-stroke vibrant and visible. The scope of Herman’s work has ranged from dynamic industrial scenery to soft, draped interiors and broad Australian landscapes, which indicates the creative fearless nature of this unique artist.

2018 Tutors



This is an informative and hands-on workshop designed for artists with some experience, based on the solid fundamental approach championed by the impressionists and realists. The first lesson in painting is don’t ever start a painting until you know why you are doing it. Next is how you are going to do it. Think things through and you will backtrack and correct less often. There is much to be said about spontaneity as long as you plan for it!
