Anthony Barrow at Shorland Old Farm!

At the end of August, Anthony Barrow led a five day painting holiday here at Shorland Old Farm.  What’s more, he brought the sunshine with him!  Not only is Tony a talented and prolific artist, he’s also a great tutor.  Students from all over England – and overseas – got to watch his fascinating demonstrations in various styes and media, and then produced some wonderful work in response.

The glorious weather meant it was a pleasure to paint around and about in the grounds of Shorland Old Farm, as well as in the studio.  There was also a day out on location to scenic Lynmouth.   Everyone worked hard and there were plenty of laughs too.

Tony will be returning to Shorland Old Farm in 2014 to lead two more painting breaks, in July and October.
