This hot new video is packed with over 2.5 hours of laser-focused instruction from one of today’s top artists!

We all long to find the extraordinary beauty among the ordinary things we see every day … and then capture that in our paintings. This takes training our senses to go around and away from what is right in front of us — to see the things that not everybody else would see.

This is what allows you to accelerate the quality of your paintings and to develop your own look … your own signature style!

In Creating Drama with Light and Color, Mike leads you to that place … the place where you can anticipate how the scene you’re seeing can become an incredible, high-quality painting. He’ll lead you on the journey to take your landscapes from flat to fabulous!

As a production designer at DreamWorks Animation, Mike has an extensive background in theatrical lighting. You’ll be amazed at how Mike takes what he knows from that world and applies it to bring theatrical-style lighting into landscape paintings!
This Is for YOU!

Mike conducts a full start-to-finish painting demonstration in gouache. If you’re a fan of gouache or you’ve been wanting to try this sometimes mysterious medium, you’re going to absolutely love this video because Mike is a master at gouache. He’ll show you everything you need to know to start experimenting with gouache or to amplify your skills if you’re already a fan.

Not interested in gouache? No worries! Mike’s insights and tips for creating dramatic paintings will work for you, too!

Mike has been an instructor for years and knows how to teach and train for every skill level. So, regardless of where you are on your art journey, you’re getting just what you need to advance. This video is one you definitely want to add to your learning library. You’ll want to refer to it again and again so you can keep applying what Mike teaches to help you level up the quality of your paintings each time.

Mike has a fun and friendly personality as well as an easygoing teaching style. You’ll find it easy to learn from him and to apply all the techniques he presents.

Owning this video gives you a front row seat to a Mike Hernandez workshop any time you want. You don’t have to travel, there’s no pressure to finish at a certain time, and you can even wear your favorite sweatpants and nobody will know!

Mike is the Best!

So hard to find good information on painting with gouache that is not illustrative and cute. And he is a wonderful artist, painter, and instructor The amount of information he provides is so comprehensive. The Q & A is also full of information. This is a video to save and watch over and over. I love that he is so loose and expressive. Just watching him hold a brush and skip across the canvas is a learning experience.

Thank you, Mike.

I was so taken with the clip that I bought the video. Haven't watched it yet, but I'm sure I'm going to like it. I follow him on facebook and like his work. His demo and presentation was more rich than I expected.

New to me, worth to watch!

Yes, this was a new thing for me. Mike was very good in explaining all the workings of gouache. Showing layering and more layering to see color and contrast. Interesting medium, I have some and will give it a try! Worth watching.
