 We are once again returning to the Caer Beris Hotel . If you enjoy painting rivers, distant mountains, open moors, farms and other landscape gems, you will be over-loaded with subjects to paint. The grounds are extensive and bordered by the lovely River Irfon. As with all courses, David will be doing several demonstrations of watercolour painting and sketching and Jenny will be on hand if you wish to use pastel

  1. I would like to go on your mid Wales July painting holiday and would be prepared to share. How would I get there without a car?

    • No problem Barbara, You can come by train to Builth Road Station and the hotel will arrange for you to be picked up. During the course we can make sure you have a lift to the sketching locations, either with David or myself or one of the other students. I haven’t got the booking forms ready yet but you can get in touch with the hotel to register your interest and they will send you the booking forms when I have them ready,

    • Hello Derek, I will send you the booking forms by email. If you decide to book a place you will need to contact the hotel direct, (details on the course page) they will book you a room and arrange transport from our local railway station if necessary.

      Hope this helps.


    • Hi Colette, We tailor the course to people’s needs and abilities as far as getting around is concerned. At many locations there is no need to do any walking, others maybe a hundred yards or a little further, while some do need a short walk over sometimes uneven ground. Also, because some people come hoping for some walking, I do take them for perhaps up to a mile or so in search of subjects, so I try to make it an interesting experience for everyone.

      In your case we would pick subjects that did not require any walking to reach them.
      I hope this helps.

  2. Thank you David,
    That sounds brilliant and as a long time admirer of your work ( and also passionate about Pembrokeshire) I would love to be able to do this or another of your courses. My husband will be able to manage that too. Meantime I have ordered a couple of your videos which I am looking forward to receiving immensely.

    • Hi Diane, I believe so. I do not taking the bookings myself. You need to contact the hotel direct to make a booking. If you have any problems please let me know. Jenny

  3. Hi there,

    Is there still space available on the mid Wales course? I’d love to book a place for my mother as she’s a huge fan of yours. Would she be able to attend the course but not stay at the hotel?

    Many thanks,

    • Hello Sarah,
      I’m afraid the course is full. We will be running a course at this venue in 2017 so watch the website for details in the autumn this year.
      Best wishes

      • Hi Jenny,

        Thank you for getting back to me. I’m gutted that the course is full up, but I’ll keep my eyes open for future courses and will make sure to book in plenty of time.


  4. Hello David,
    I have been fortunate to get a place booked on your painting course at the Caer Beris Hotel and looking forward to that.
    I am a great admirer of your style of work and have almost all your books DVD’s. which are very helpful.
    Saw your exhibition at the John Muir Trust, Pitlochry, also your painting demonstartion at the Festival Theatre. That was back in April 2014.

  5. Do you know howmuch it would be just for the course in july as I live in Newbridge on wye so not far to go for me.

    • HI Emily, The tuition element of the course for the whole week is £200. The rest of the costs are meals and accommodation. If you are local and the course is already full, you can attend some of the outdoor sessions and sketch with us plus indoor demonstrations. We have already discussed this in messenger but we would only make a small charge for the sessions you attend because with a full course there is not enough space for everyone to paint indoors. Hope this helps.

  6. Hi Is there any availability of place for Mid Wales course starting from 24 to 29 July 2016? I will be travelling from Mumbai, India for the said course. Many thanks, Regards

    • Hi Divya, Sorry the course has been full for some time, and I believe there is already a waiting list in case of any last minute cancellations. The courses get booked up months in advance and we publish details on the website around September time so watch the website then for details of courses in 2017.
