Mike Hernandez Workshop


Huge thanks to our Juror, Mike Hernandez who judged our show and provided a great workshop 

It has to be said, Mike is usually the tallest one in most crowds!

He taught both gouache and oil, this is his gouache palette.

Small studies to start

explaining his methods

More lecture

a reminder, the dome of the sky has to be taken into consideration

Demo

small illustration board works well

Everyone is listening!

 
And now we have our own go at it

THANKS again, Mike Hernandez, we very much appreciate you and we learned a lot !
