General Course Information

Further information:

Beginners are encouraged on the UK courses and emphasis is placed on working out of doors as we feel this is the best way to improve your painting. Non-painting partners are welcome on all of the courses.

Please contact the venue direct and they will send you complete details of the course and a booking form. The prices all include accommodation and tuition.

We strongly recommend that you buy holiday insurance to cover last minute cancellations.

Course Structure:
The main emphasis on the courses is to encourage you to sketch the landscape from real life and then interpret your sketches into finished paintings. The first part of the course is therefore spent outside, weather permitting, gathering subjects. We will choose sketching positions that are easy to access and most will be close to the vehicles, however, if some people want to walk a little way, one of us will always be on hand to guide you.The subjects will be varied so that there should be something to excite you. For more details check this document. Course Schedule

The latter part of the course will be spent in the hotel/studio where David will demonstrate some watercolour techniques and then you will begin to work up your sketches into paintings with advice and suggestions from David and Jenny.

The day normally begins at 9.30 after breakfast and tuition finishes at about 4.30 p.m. although you are welcome to paint in the evening. The course finishes with a personal appraisal of the work done during the course on the last afternoon.

The number of students on the course is between 10 and 16 and both Jenny and David will be giving tuition.
