Exclamation 1 Seat Left!! planetFigure Workshop 2011

A first for PlanetFigure and a first for figurists in the USA!

We, at PlanetFigure, are proud to present a new project designed to help improve any one's level on painting miniatures. For the first time in the USA, we will host a figure painting class in St. Louis with the renowned acrylics painter Fernando Ruiz, from Barcelona, Spain.
More than just your average hour long painting demo at a figure show, this will cover all the basics and advanced techniques demonstrated by painters from Spain and Europe.
Figurists across Spain, Italy and the rest of Europe attend workshops and seminars between shows to learn from talented and well known artists that share their techniques to help other painters to strengthen their skills. We, at PlanetFigure, have decided to try giving the same chance of live learning to painters here in North America for the first time.

This class will consist of 8 hour sessions over three days and will cover the painting of a 54 mm figure from start to finish with acrylics’ techniques. The class size will be kept minimal giving Fernando time to assist each participant to follow along.
Included in the cost of the seminar will be a set of top quality Marta Kolinsky brushes for each participant and the miniature. Also, we’ll be providing diverse reference material for each pupil, including a printed SBS on the miniature (Fernando will bring a sample of it painted and will paint another one live so everybody can see the process) along with high resolution photographs.

Veteran painters, dioramists, armor modelers or new painters, the depth of instruction and tutorial would be a benefit to everyone.
Also we plan to do some other general activities in order to relax from the class hours and get the pupils to know each other in a good atmosphere of friendship and comradeship.

Instructor: Fernando Ruiz
When: September 2-4
Where: Embassy Suites (Augusta Room), St. Charles, Missouri
Duration: 24 hours, three eight hour days
Work Piece: The Violinist by Nocturna
Cost: $250.00 USD (miniature included)
Class size: 25

Vallejo (Paints and Brushes for particpants)

Gordy

Thank you very much for this posting and the notice of available seats left for Workshop 2011, sponsored by planetfigure.com.

It sounds like it is forming up to be a great painting seminar given by Master figure painter, Fernando Ruiz.

Very exciting, indeed.

Here are some photos of the seminar figure (a private purchase), "The Violinist"

Box art and resin parts pegged together.

Best wishes to all the attendees of Workshop 2011 and more photos to come.

Thanks Alex, this is one sweet figure!

I'm really looking forward to it, although this isn't an "armor" figure, Fernando's acrylics techniques are the same used as some of the popular armor modelers in Spain =)

I'm anxious to get my hand on some brushes, it's been toooo long brotha!
