Michael Solovyev is an artist born and trained in Russia in all mediums since the tender age of 5 years old. He has achieved International Master Status and since moving to Montreal he now has the opportunity to travel and workshop. Michael has been the President of the International Watercolor Society, Canada and he paints vibrant, contemporary watercolours…please see links below for his 15 Minute Mondays on You Tube! He also is a plein air master and a studio painter of wonderful, contemporary figurative works, so if you would like to join our group, we would love to have you in the group.


When I went to Fabriano, Italy last year, Michael was staying at the same B&B as husband Rob and me and that led to an invitation being issued to visit Perth and tutor some workshops. Suddenly, that was nearly a year ago and now he will soon be here!

He will tutor 2 x 3 day workshops and the format will be:

Saturday, Sunday, Monday 1st, 2nd, 3rd June  …… workshop one.
First two days will be plein air, the last day will be in the studio.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday  4th, 5th 6th June.. workshop two.
First two days will be plein air, last day in studio.

Or you can sign up for all 6 days and/or share with a friend!


If you share any of the days with a friend, payment will need to be made in full by one party, then artists can work out what days suit to share , this sharing can apply to either workshop or the whole 6 days.

Plein air ….subject to weather permitting. In the event of inclement weather, we will paint in my studio

COST: $300 per 3 day workshop, ie $100 per day

TIME: Be setup and ready to paint at 10am, so aim to arrive by 9.30am. Finish will be around 3.30pm.
Plein Air Venues: To be advised closer to the day!
Studio sessions: 6 Spata Lane, Canning Vale.

At this stage we are planning to take Michael camping as he wants to see as much as possible the week after the workshops,  so a Tagalong Camping trip is also being planned. If you want to be included on this list re updates please advise!

Artists from the workshops will be given preference if numbers are large.
