Painting Workshop by Elías Alonso and Rafael García (Morsa/Volomir)

I am pleased to announce a new painting course taking place. This time it will be something a bit different than my last painting courses.

This course will be a painting workshop conducted jointly by Elias Alonso (Morsa) and myself, Rafael Garcia Marin (Volomir). It will take place in the store Miko-Arts in Madrid the days 16 and 17 July 2011.

The course will focus on painting the latest miniature of Andrea Miniatures Dark Nova range, Gabriel Blackburn (the box art is done by Elias Alonso himself) from the beginning. It will be entirely practical, we will not stop to explain theory but it will be a dynamic painting workshop focused in mixed tecniques using brush and airbrush.

Therefore, these concepts will be the ones we will be practising on:

    • Preparation of a metal figure of 54 mm
    • Lighting of a figure (types of lighting, light, shadow, contrast)
    • Mixed brush/airbrush painting techniques (brush strokes, glazes, colours, watering, inks, outlining...)
    • Painting a face
    • Metals (Real Metal and NMM: Non Metallic Metal)
    • Effects (textures, scratches, chips, blood...)
    • Freehands

The course will consist of 2 days, 12 hours total. We will begin on Saturday 16 in the morning, we will stop for lunch and we will continue in the afternoon. On Sunday 17 we will only paint in the morning so that the course is not too heavy and we better assimilate the techniques practised. After, there will be an on-line follow-up so we finish painting the miniature to assure proper completion of the figure.

The maximum number of participants will be 12 people. Having two teachers, the course will be as personal as possible and we will the most out of the available space.

The course fee is 95 euros. This price includes the miniature we're going to paint, the latest new release from Andrea Miniature's Dark Nova range, Gabriel Blackburn (worth about 30 euros).

If you are interested, send me an email to the address volomir (at) or just put a comment. Hurry because we will run out of spots soon!
