Join us painting in big sky country!
An historic land of windmills, waterways, beach huts and fishermen, Norfolk has appealed to artists for centuries with some of the most distinctive and picturesque landscapes in Britain.

We will paint the fascinating North Norfolk scenery around Wells-next-the-Sea and beyond. 

Explore this unique landscape with a group of up to 12 people.   

Norfolk's broad horizons, open beaches and old fishing towns will be the location for our 5 days of painting on location. Offering a good range of subject matter from farm and marsh land, beaches, boat yards, windmills and a wealth of historic buildings, we will base our week around Wells next the Sea. There are so many great spots to paint, we won't know where to start!

Wells next the Sea and surrounding area

The area: We will be spoilt for choice in this part of Norfolk with so many beautiful locations and villages nearby. We are just a stone's throw from the iconic Blakeney with its nature reserve and boat moorings, the wonderful Burnham, Morston and Brancaster Staithes are close at hand and there are plenty of picturesque villages and views in between. The broad open vistas all around give ideal opportunities for painting those classic big Norfolk skies.

The beautiful beach at Wells is bordered by pine woodland and beach huts and the town itself, filled with old streets and architecture will provide a broad range of subjects for us. The many cafes, restaurants and pubs will ensure that we are never short of refreshments.
