Tutored by Christine Forbes, a talented teacher with a wide experience of many different media, this course is based in the exclusive Les Charmes de Carlucet, and will give those who want to paint in watercolour a good solid grounding in observational drawing too.
Sunday evening welcome drinks and dinner at Les Charmes will give you a chance to meet your hosts Kerry and Tomas and your tutor Christine, and enjoy a presentation of the week's programme.
Each working day will start after breakfast with a 'teach in' at the studio in the Manor house, focusing on a particular aspect of watercolour painting - composition, colour, tone etc - designed to prepare the artists and help them when they start work. At the end of each working day there will be a round up in the studio to look at each other's work and discuss the points of the day, followed by dinner at Les Charmes.
Participants should be able to walk short distances and carry their own equipment. You will be transported to each painting location each day. The group will enjoy outings around the countryside, visiting gorges, cliffs or other natural views such as woodland, gardens etc of the famous region.
