From the narrow cobbled streets with their rustic buildings and cafes to the bustling markets, gardens and waterfront moorings, this course will focus on sketching and painting on location and capturing a sense of light, mood, and atmosphere in your work.

An award-winning artist and encouraging tutor, Paul teaches a painting strategy based on the key principles of sound drawing, good design and composition, creative control of the watercolour basics and expressive brushwork. He will guide you through his techniques for working with watercolour and getting the best from an onsite painting, as well as making effective sketches in pencil or line and wash to use as a reference back in the studio.

This holiday is aimed at artists who are confident with the watercolour basics and wish to develop their plein air strategy and a looser style.

Flights are not included in the price but the transfer from the airport is.
