Combined Art Socities 3 day Workshop with Herman Pekel

Combined Art Societies 3 days Workshop at Merroo 2016
3 days with Herman Pekel.  Herman is a great artist, I love his style be it landscapes or streetscaqpes. He is also an excellent  tutor and I have learned a great deal.  The 3 days are quite demanding, you literally paint till you drop from 9 in the morning till 16.00 and by Sunday the brain simply refuses to cooperate. 
6 paintings in 3 days.  My effort at one of the street scene was pretty awful, so I scraped the paint off and will redo it again at home.  Good practice.  
Herman paints the Melbourne street scenes with such an ease…. and they are absolutely stunning …. Maybe I should stick to landscapes 


  1. Very beautiful! Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)

  2. I am speechless Alena, six paintings in three days and all beautiful. I look at them upside down trying to find my Fav but I cant decide, they are all different and each one has its own great highlight. The last two ones do have an extra 5 stars point due to the amazing light. I wish I could paint with oils as good as that. Big compliment!

  3. These are all excellent works, Love the first one as well, wonderful mood and atmosphere. GREAT!

  4. Very wonderful paintings with so amazing colours !!!
