This painting course is set in the enticing landscape
of the beautiful Luberon valley, surrounded by cherry orchards, vineyards and olive groves, and impressive stonebuilt villages. In autumn the light mellows as the valley is carpeted with magnificent bronze vineyards.
This week will help you to deepen your understanding of the relationship between drawing and painting. We aim to inspire and relax you so that you can learn, share ideas and have fun, far away from everyday constraints.
Where better to study painting on location than in the home of some of Britain's best loved plein air painters? West Cornwall offers a unique quality of light and stunning coastline that has attracted artists for two centuries. The fishing villages remain as characterful as ever, and the beaches are still as idyllic as they were when the Newlyn School was founded, almost 140 years ago. This is one of my favourite places to paint, and I can’t wait to share its treasures with a group of up to 10 people.
Our beautiful and historic watermill stands beside the River Rosaro in the small village of Posara. Peaceful and secluded, yet part of the village, the mill is just a mile or so from the walled medieval town of Fivizzano with its cafés, restaurants and shops. This is the heart of Lunigiana, in the North-west of Tuscany, a truly unspoilt part of Italy.
Shropshire's rolling hills, deep river valleys and medieval market towns will be the location for our 5 days of painting on location. Join us at harvest time as we explore one of England's most beautiful and best kept secrets. With it's diverse landscape and wealth of historic buildings, we will base our week around Ludlow and Church Stretton, using the lovely Westhope College as our base.
