Paint on the castle grounds including a river view, castle architecture and 270 acres of pristine countryside, and in surrounding medieval villages. All levels welcome, though some prior experience drawing or painting would be helpful. Instruction will be in oil but you can bring any medium you are comfortable with.
My aim is to teach students to see with an artist's eye, rather than to follow formulas. Value relationships, design, color mixing and editing and rearranging a scene, will be discussed and demonstrated, and special emphasis will be on creating mood in a painting. I'll provide individual attention at each student's easel to bring everyone to their next level of advancement.
Retreat Date - July 16-23 2020.
7 nights of lodging at the castle. 5 days of instruction July 17,18,19. 21-22. 20th off for sight-seeing or painting on your own. Painting sites include the grounds of the castle and nearby medieval villages.
