Profile: Herman Pekel
Multiple winner of the prestigious Camberwell Rotary Watercolour prize and the Camberwell Rotary Travel Scholarship, Herman Pekel creates powerful paintings of the Australian landscape, urban vistas and moody interiors. He works in oil and gouache as well as watercolor, often painting the same subject in multiple mediums. "Fearless" has been a word to describe his strong compositions and dynamic brush strokes.
Pekel sent us a step-by-step demonstration of the watercolor plein air painting above that he had recently completed.
