Right, from straight on top of the miniature!
“Vielen Dank nochmal für den hervorragenden Kurs!!!
Some days ago
in my hometown, Augsburg I was able to teach again.
This time my well known beginner seminar that gives insight into my way while painting. The class was in german language. Aimed at all skill levels and I was really happy to welcome 27 students from Germany and Austria.
With only five repeaters of the class it was a seminar packed with new people, which makes me a very happy teacher. It shows that there is still interest in seminars for students who are interested in growing on their own journey. Of course I do offer advanced topic classes and masterclasses, but in the end it comes down to this workshop to see new faces interested in telling stories with their figures and starting their journey to display painting.
The theory parts contain:
– Learn to see your world with different eyes
– Introduction into basing composition
– Learn how to feel harmony in different aspects
– Important contrasts for figure painting
– Explanation about how to paint a light situation on your figure
– Understand colour theory and learn how to use it properly
– Learn about different materials, their unique properties and learn to paint them
– Learn to lose fear of doing something wrong
– much more!
Our classrooom for the weekend in Augsburg!
“Vielen Dank für den tollen Kurs und das inspirierende Wochenende!” – Bastian
When it comes to basing I got to thank the supporters of this class who made the class wonderful due their help in sponsoring some of their products, beside my own crazy material collection:
and Kellerkind Miniatures.
This review is quite mixed up when it comes to photos. It will not follow the structure of the class.
Call it a freestyle review 🙂

“Ich wollte einfach kurz Danke sagen für ein intensives aber absolut großartiges Wochenende!
“Ich muss sagen ich hatte durch die Erzählungen von einem Freund ja schon eine hohe Erwartung an den Kurs – dennoch wurden die bei Weitem übertroffen! Gerade der durchdachte Ablauf und dass alles aufeinander aufbaut hat mir sehr sehr gut gefallen und mich gedanklich als auch technisch unglaublich weiter gebracht! Ich bin oft mit den Hunden in der Natur unterwegs aber so intensiv wie die letzten Tage habe ich noch nie meine Umgebung betrachtet. Da sieht man überall nur noch Farbverläufe, Schattierungsfarben, Strukturen usw. 😀 Nochmals vielen vielen Dank für das tolle Wochenende, wir sehen uns sicher in einem deiner Kurse wieder!” – Stephan
And I have to admit, I really made here the right decision! (Although I got a little bit nervous, when I realized, I was indeed the only person with absolute no experiences, because I didn’t want to hold the others back or something.) (But) I was part of a great group of very kind and encouraging people and I learned from Roman a lot about colours, contrasts, techniques of painting und base-building, but most important – thanks to his inspiring teaching – I learned to seperate conceptually the art of painting minis from the nessesity to use them for playing. I really love the idea of telling a story with them.
Painting explanations starts 🙂
These photos above are in no way in a particular order 😀
Thanks to Oliver and Bastian for sending over some more photos for the review.
Unfortanetely I did not take many photos on my own during the class as I was, well, busy with teaching 🙂
In depth explanations happened, but not much photos from it 🙂
Well, we all know it is about the photos of the projects and we got many of them.
Thanks to the gang of students of this workshop …
thanks to my hand for messing up this group photo 😀
The results of my students during the weekend … I am always amazed of their uniqueness:
No hand this time, but wrong angle 😀
Sorry for the blurry one over here! Ahhh!
Great, another one! Sorryio!
again I want to thank everyone attenting to this seminar.
It really made my heart jump with joy to hear your beautiful feedback and see you all learned a big deal of my way of happy painting and what it means for me and for you from now on. Like I said, everyone of us is on his own journey on growth and collecting experience. I am really proud of you!
Thank you all for your support in my teachings and art!
Keep on happy painting!
