After Consultation with Students, Daniel & Paradise One, we have decided to change this Vision Craft Painting Intensive to a  7-day workshop (from a 10-day). We hope this suits our prospective students even better. The prices below reflect reduced costs.

Daniel Mirante is a painter, researcher, and teacher of painting techniques. Fresh from teaching 3 months at the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art, Daniel will be visiting Byron Shire and holding a 10-day training in the venerable mischtechnik at Paradise One.

Mischtechnik is a ‘mixed technique’ of egg tempera with oil glazes. An old masters method, modernised in the 20th century by Ernst Fuchs. The mischtechnik is widely appreciated within the visionary art movement as a technique which lends itself perfectly to the depiction of spiritual realms, visions, and dreams. It is a great step-by-step inroad into the deep principles of oil painting.

For the past 17 years, Daniel has dedicated himself wholeheartedly to the study of mischtechnik and variants based in the Venetian 14th century. Initially self-taught, Daniel then sought instruction from the lineage of fantastic realism via Brigid Marlin, then Ernst Fuchs. He is dedicated to dispensing this knowledge to his students open-handedly, to empower their own personal creativity, and in a collective way contributing to the rebirth of the ‘dreaming’ in the world.

We will in the 7 days cover this ground
(please note: the map will be a little different for repeat students, who will be taught slightly different aspects depending on their current direction)

Composition and the Alchemical Mandala (creation of sacred space in the canvas)
Working from a toned ground
Beginning an underpainting (principles of value, chiaroscuro, blocking)
Making and using egg tempera and lead white for luminosity
Moving into colour – glazing, and scumbling

Along the way, we will learn many essential fundamentals about archival methods – best practices in terms of materials and their use, based on the up to date knowledge derived from sharing within professional networks of the painting restoration and conservation communities.

Daniel’s teaching methods are highly regarded as being sensitive to individual needs as well as facilitating a group atmosphere of focus and fun. In his words: “It is a group journey everyone embarks on together in which the tremendous collective intelligence of the group becomes available as a resource to draw from, for the energy to pass through many creative thresholds.”

The retreat will be a balance of “Techne” & “Psyche“. With Psyche, we will explore our intuitive creativity. We will develop this exploration through Techne – old masters methods of composition and oil painting with egg tempera, in a guided process suitable for people of all levels of artistic experience.
