The briefing for the weekend is as follows

“Colour Theory, Underpainting techniques & Advanced Contrast Paints”

A deep dive into Renaissance underpainting techniques and how to use them in miniature painting with modern tools like Contrast Paints and Inks!

From speed and army painting to high quality display models I’ll show you how and why these methods have been used for centuries by classic painters to ease, speed up and of course improve the quality of their masterpieces and how this knowledge can be easily applied to our little canvases.

-This is a “Brush Only” Painting Workshop.

What you need to bring

We want you to have an incredible weekend and will be in touch before the date to confirm exact requirements but for now we are expecting you to bring the basics needed to paint your minis successfully, and comfortably. -This is a “Brush Only” Workshop.

Marco will supply a Bust to paint, I will provide a warm comfortable venue and logistics. Your painting area will be approximately 1.5m2 and there is free parking onsite.

Please bring extension 4 socket extension leads a painting lamp and any painting accessories that you wish to use through the day, paints / palettes etc. Contrast Paints, Inks or similar products are recommended for the workshop, but don’t worry if you don’t own/can’t bring them: we’ll have a shared pool during the course and part of the topic is precisely what to use as an alternative!  What to bring with you:



-Wet palette.

Need to know before you attend Marco Frisoni Painting Workshop

I will make a WhatsApp group for the class MAKE SURE I HAVE YOUR MOBILE NUMBER IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF THIS.

This venue is remote but only 5 minutes from the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge so a car is recommended, if you don’t have a car, then transfers are available from the Airport/ Train stations at additional cost a Taxi from the station to our venue is around £30 so do let me know as we can offer it much cheaper than that. Closer to the time I will get a WhatsApp group set up so you can make any joint arrangements/ get involved in the hype 😊
