Draw/Paint This In Your Style with Pro Team Artist Nick Runge






This month, we are hosting a Draw/Paint this in Your Style Contest with Trekell Pro Team Artist Nick Runge.

After working as an illustrator on comics and posters for over a decade, Nick shifted from commercial art to focus on his portrait/figurative painting using oils and watercolor. Nick works from life as well as photography, describing his art as something close to “abstracted realism”, expressing as much of the realistic human element, while breaking shapes and forms down in his rendering and brushwork.

Nick currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area. He also hosts a series of watercolor workshops both online and aboard.

For this contest, we are asking artists far and wide to recreate Nick’s piece, “Watcher”, in their own style using any drawing or painting method or medium. Once your piece is complete, post it to Instagram with the hashtag #trekellxrunge for your chance to win one of Nick’s Limited Edition Brush Sets.

Nick has tried so many different brush brands over the years. He feels that Trekell brushes really deliver in both detail and durability. So much so, that we’ve teamed up with Nick to create a Limited Edition Brush set designed for the watercolorist, but that will also work for oil, acrylic, enamel and gouache. Nick says that he feels so lucky to work with Trekell and we must say that the feeling is definitely mutual!

How it Works:
Once the entry period is closed, Trekell Pro Team Artist Nick Runge will choose a winner or multiple winners and that person(s) will receive a Nick Runge Limited Edition Brush Set (retail value $54.99). We will announce the winner(s) of the prize on April 16th. Post your entries using hashtag #trekellxrunge each day.

We can’t wait to see your art based on Nick Runge’s “Watcher”. Please join us and fellow artists in a show of creativity and inspiration, and best of luck to everyone!
