Environmental issues are a great concern to Herman and his love of the landscape reflects that in almost everything he paints. He produces strong design and powerful impact paintings – every brushstroke vibrant and visible. The scope of Herman’s work ranges from dynamic industrial scenery to soft, draped interiors and broad Australian landscapes, which indicates the creatively fearless nature of this unique artist.
In this Masterclass, Herman will guide you through his step-by-step process – beginning with a fast
foundation painting and ending with a range of final approach options that are easy to learn and thought-provoking.
Most importantly, Herman will work with you to articulate your own vision and find solutions to your own challenges.
Herman will teach you to find originality in your own work and to get started with new ideas in a way that is fast and fun!
