Mische Technique Workshop


Ever wonder how VanEyck, Memling and other 15th Century painters were able to achieve their beautiful luminous works? This workshop will teach you the craftsmanship of building a painting from the ground up. Learn how to make traditional panels, the egg/oil emulsion for underpainting and then glaze in oils to create a beautiful glowing work.
Classes are private with 1-3 students in my home studio. The three hour classes are once a week for 4 weeks.  For more info visit:
