Confirmed: second date 30-31 July Painting Workshop by Morsa and Volomir

Finally we confirm that there will be a second date for the painting course imparted by Elias Alonso (Morsa) and me. This second date will finally be 30-31 July, and again it will take place in the store Miko-Arts in Madrid.

It will be exactly the same as the one we will be doing on the weekend of 16-17 July. There are still spots available if you wish to come, so I repeat the details of the course:

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 schedule is:

    • Saturday: morning 15.30-19.30 and evening 10-14 (pause to eat for an hour and a half)
    • Sunday: morning 10-14.

  • Before the course all attendees will receive a printed dossier on painting explanations on the miniature of Gabriel Blackburn (which we will paint in the workshop).

  • All attendees will receive a unique chameleon modeled by Elias Alonso to decorate their bases (a very nice animal, similar to the boxart version of Gabriel Blackburn from Andrea).

  • The necessary and essential material for the course will be the brushes. It will be convenient (but not essential) that each attendee brings their light and paints. The figure will be delivered on the first day of the course and will be already prepared for painting.

  • Miko-Arts Shop address is Camarena, 90, Madrid. The nearest metro station is Metro Aluche. Any doubt about the store you can call (+34)917196531.

  • 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).

  • Full payment will be made before the course to confirm full reservation.

If you are interested, send me an email to the address volomir (at) or just put a comment.
