8 – 12 April 2020
Water & trees watercolourAbout the course

Trees, foliage and water are fundamental elements for the watercolour landscape painter to capture.  Paul encourages a loose, expressive approach with watercolour, and weather-permitting, he likes to combine studio with painting outdoors.

On this course he will guide you through his key techniques for capturing an impression of trees and foliage throughout the seasons, as well as portraying water, from calm lakes to rough seas and crashing waves.

The holiday runs from 4pm Thursday 8 April to 10am Monday 12 April with 3 day’s tuition and 4 nights’ accommodation.
