Over the week we will be working from a variety of locations and daily demonstrations will cover different approaches to plein air painting using oils as well as exploring a range of sketching techniques on location.

The course is suitable for beginners as well as experienced painters and an oil painting approach will be taught although students are welcome to use their own preferred mediums.

The emphasis will be on looking, enjoying, experimenting and gathering ideas for the future as well as completing works on location during the week.

He is keen to support his students on their own artistic journey and will encourage them to get the most out of their holiday experience.

Paul himself is an enthusiastic oil painter and sketching also plays an important role in his work. During the week Paul will share his knowledge and skills through demonstrations and individual and group discussions.
