This was the first time we'd run an event focussed entirely on one aspect of painting, and was also the first tutorial event to be held at our new studio - so epically exciting all round! 14 eager students rocked up, keen to learn the mystical secrets of Non Metallics from zen painting master Tommie Soule.
The day kicked of with an overview talk on painting flat areas using the 'rule of jewel'
Some student examples of the 'rule of jewel; in action:
After everyone had tried their hand at that, it was time for lunch, and lasagna and jacket spuds were the order of the day. Tommie then moved onto the 'rule of real', and the students attacked the rounded leg armour of their Sanguinary Guards with gusto!
All in all it was a really fun day, and the examples of NMM produced by the students on the day were very impressive. Here's what some of the attendees had to say:
"Brilliant! What's next?"
"More of the same please..."
"Really enjoyed myself, and the food was excellent."
