Decorative  Painting BOOKS


ML Mural Art  is offering " FREE Online Painting Classes" 

Our series of online  painting classes include  Bauernmalerei Basic and Bauernmalerei Advanced 

You will be taught authentic Bauernmalerei techniques based upon traditional cabinet/chest patterns as well 

as Gerhard's Bauernmalerei painting. I would like to introduce you to 

a Bauernmalerei painting style which has been past on to me from my family in Austria/Europe

Our classes are created to enjoy painting, the instructions are easy to understand and supported with videos, worksheets

and pictures through out each project.

These workshop is a great support for painters who are discovering Bauernmalerei or which already know about 

Bauernmalerei, but would like to try a new approach.

BAUERNMALEREI is not only about painting flowers - it has a wealth of decorative possibilities. Faux painted marble, wood gaining,

veneer painting, Kleister techniques, antiquing and decorative line work are completing the Bauernmalerei painting.

Also there are symbols and signs with deep meaning and of course religious and country scenery enhanced with baroque design.

All those wonderful additions to Bauenmalerei we will have in our ongoing Bauernmalerei series.

For now we have prepared our BAUERNMALEREI BASIC which gets you started to discover Bauernmalerei in a different way -

fun, uncomplicated, relaxed... and I am quite sure in the future you will discover - develop you own style which reflects your heritage

with your personal design and color combinations.

(Austria - Europe) through generations of fine artists and folk artists.

Over 30 years of painting and teaching Bauernmalerei and Decorative Painting in various art classes in Austria, Germany,
