Artistic Exuberance - Andreas Mattern

Intense listening.

Two weeks ago I went to a presentation on watercolor painting at my local artists supply. It was held by Andreas Mattern, a Berlin-based artist. The only word that comes to my mind when I think about his presentation: AWESOME. I truly loved every second of it.

Explaining something

He taught us so much in so little time (only 2 1/2 hours), starting with a little bit of material science (don't buy cheap! I learned that lesson: http://sans-visual-art.blogspot.de/2012/03/lukas-vs-winsor-newton-vs-schmincke.html) to some nifty tricks.

His point of view on some matter. His painting in the background is showing Cottbus.
In any case I've decided to definitely take a class with him. He obviously is an amazing teacher.

  3. Looks like this was a fabulous workshop for you...oh, to see him work on his craft must've been wonderful!!
