Workshop description:

The enchanting landscape of the Pöllau Valley Nature Park and especially the castle park in Pöllau will be our inspiration when painting outdoors. We will immerse ourselves in the expressive world of oil colours and create an individual spectrum of our colour ideas by mixing radiant, pure or neutral tones.

Just as the Impressionists once knew how to depict fleeting moments, we will also interpret what we see and feel over the four days of this workshop, from the grandiose panorama to the most intimate detail. Natural still lifes from the lavishly rich flora of the Pöllau Valley will inspire us just as much as the architectural intricacies of the picturesque baroque town of Pöllau.

We use the variety of motifs to interpret them individually. Depending on ability and personal preference, different stages of abstraction can be explored and freely lived out. The workshop is of course also ideal for newcomers to oil painting. As always, experienced landscape painters will take home new ideas and detailed insights.

Depending on your wishes, we can also create your own still lifes, self-portraits or work from photographs.
