Lake District Landscape Painting Workshops - Watercolour | Soft Pastel



Struggling with watercolour or soft pastel? Well you need to come and take one of my day workshops. My workshops are all about helping you get back to having fun and getting your chosen medium to do what you want it to do. I will help you to see why some of the things you may have been shown previously might just be the things that are stopping you from progressing. During each workshop I demonstrate and pass on the very techniques that I have employed in my own painting for the last twenty odd years that enable me to produce watercolour and soft pastel landscape paintings full of atmosphere, drama & texture. We start the day at 10am and finish at 4pm with a break for lunch and you can either bring a packed lunch with you or if you fancy treating yourself (and why not!) you can can visit one of the many cafe's in Ambleside. Tea & coffee etc will be provided throughout the day by me free of charge and I will even throw in a chocolate biscuit or three. An information pack with more details and directions (map below) will be provided by email before your chosen workshop date but if you have any questions before you make your booking please feel free to contact me. I look forward to meeting you! Please contact me for availability, more information or to book your place.
