Review: Private Coaching with Thomas

by Roman aka jar

Hey Jungle, 

another private coaching review dropping in the jungle.
A private coaching is a two day session were I help you with your miniature painting questions, one on one. Of course all subjects are differents as the painters who arrive at the studio in Augsburg are on different journeys to progress in their painting skills. So they all have different questions.

Early February I was happy to welcome Thomas from Berlin for a two day session.
He loves to paint his models mainly for gaming, but was interested in more knowledge. We both agreed on that my content of my beginner seminar would fit perfect to his questions. It is not very common that I teach this subject in a private coaching, but the more fun it was.

Me & Thomas

Somehow I was not able to take many photos as we were both in depth in guidance, teaching and learning. Really enjoyable chats about life too. Time went by in a glimpse of an eye and Thomas did really learn quite a lot. So far he was using a basic color for certain areas and a wash on top of his gaming models without deeper background on why or how to do something different. This is were I came into play with the content of my beginner seminar:

Instructor: Roman Lappat
Duration: Friday/Saturday/Sunday (2.5 days)

The word 'beginner' might be confusing to many first time participants of this class. It is not a class for 'only' beginners. In fact it is a class for every person, at every age interested in figure painting, whatever their experience level is.
'Beginners class' means that I give an introduction into my way of thinking while painting; in detail a lot of in depth theory is explained while extracting art concepts from art history lessons and putting this knowledge in practical exercises on miniature canvas. During the weekend you will not only learn to improve your painting skills, you will also learn to understand the 'Why?' behind everything. With that you will be able to teach yourself in your own hobby future by just recognizing what nature has to offer.
Main topics:- Learn to see your world with different eyes
- Introduction into basing composition
- Learn how to feel harmony in different aspects
- Important contrasts for figure painting
- Explanation about how to paint a light situation on your figure
- Understand colour theory and learn how to use it properly
- Learn about different materials, their unique properties and learn to paint them
- Wide range of painting techniques explained and used
- Learn to lose fear of doing something wrong
- much more!

My experience level in doing this specific class is high as I have done over 60+ hands on seminars over the last decades. Many of my students visit this class several times to manifest the massive amount of knowledge presented in one weekend.
Student level: All

Of course this seminar usually takes 2,5 days. In this private coaching I had only two. This is mainly the reason why I did not take many photos during the coaching. We were busy.

"Nochmals vielen Dank für die empfangene Gastfreundschaft und das für meine Begriffe perfekt Coaching - freue mich darauf, heute Abend die Dämonette meinem Bruder zu präsentieren." - Thomas

Thomas' beginner content demonette:

Thank you for two splendid days in good company, Thomas and your will to learn from me :)

Keep on happy painting!
Best Wishes,
