KL Rembrandt Workshop


A 3-day intensive workshop in Selangor with international master artist Michael Britton!

Friday thru Sunday, 10-12 April, 2020!

I have benefited from the portrait workshop I attended. I learnt a lot from you, especially what you said about art is the process of taking away and adding over and over. I also learnt that some of the shortcuts I saw online were bad methods. It was immensely helpful and an eye-opening experience. Thank you for being so patient and cheerful.

In this 3-day intensive workshop beginning Friday, 10 April 2020 at 11:00 you will produce three paintings of Rembrandt's alla prima self-portraits.

Using Rembrandt's techniques you will learn how to quickly draw with the brush while simultaneously striking the large shapes, establishing the proportions and blocking in major pattern of light and dark. From there you will establish the initial flesh tones, called the Ebauche.

Painting wet-into-wet you will paint in full chroma while succinctly articulating the facial features to achieve a three-dimensional portrait painting of one of Rembrandt's self-portraits. You can choose from several portraits to study.

All of your painting materials are supplied. You will be painting with professional grade oil paints (Old Holland).


The workshop will be held at A Space to __, a large, well-lit and air-conditioned studio. Coffee, tea and lite snacks are provided.

Michael is a great teacher and a talented artist as well!!! He encouraged me to go for my ideas and helped me realise it. It's a wonderful experience. I would definitely want to learn oil painting again with Michael:))))

I had such a great time; I've never taken an art class before but Michael was very patient and helpful, and catered to every skill level. We started out the morning with a demonstration and then got started. Before I knew it, it was time for lunch!

All in all, I learned a lot, met some lovely people, and had such an enjoyable day - I'd definitely recommend this class and am already thinking about when I can book it again.

Testimonial Kuala Lumpur


The pace of your step by step teaching was not too fast nor too slow. Also, the style of teaching and class was friendly.

I also like the relevant history you added from time to time along the workshop. It helps me understand the context more.

Your tips or guidance on how to paint professionally are very useful e.g not to copy but paint in our own language, comparing painting with piano playing makes me understand better about rhythm of painting, etc.

I always wanted to try painting but never got around to it until I signed up for this class. Now I'm hooked. Michael is both a very talented artist and teacher. He was patient and encouraging. Thank you, Michael.
