Painting Holidays

PORTUGAL - 10th - 17th June 2020

Watercolour and sketching techniques - 10th - 17th June 2020

From the narrow cobbled streets with their rustic buildings and cafes, to the bustling markets,
gardens and waterfront moorings, the focus of this course will be sketching and painting on
location and creating 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 brush work.

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 reference back in the studio.

This holiday is aimed more at artists who are confident with the watercolour basics and wish to
develop their skills painting outdoors and a looser style.
