    in almost any subject matter and is capable of producing award winning work in oil, watercolor, or gouache.
    Environmental issues are a great concern to Herman and the love of the landscape reflects that in almost everything
    he paints. He produces painting of strong design and powerful impact. - every brushstroke vibrant and visible. The
    scope of Herman's works has ranged from dynamic industrial scenery to soft, draped interiors and broad Australian

    What an amazing artist and friend we have in Herman Pekel

    Covid has been very hard on so many and Art in the Mountains is no exception. I
    have been amazed at the outpouring of love and concern from my clients and my
    instructors. So many people have offered help. Herman Pekel is offering this
    demonstration through Art in the Mountains in an effort to help us stay afloat
    through the year as we pivot with new ideas and strategies. We are hopeful to
    return to live workshops next year, but will plan to offer Zoom classes if we cannot
    meet in person.
