Sketching & Painting in Gardens at Selworthy - 7 Night Residential
Contact course provider
About the Course
Gardens have been a great inspiration for many artists from Brueghal and Gainsborough to Monet and Patrick Heron. For this sketching and painting holiday, we are lucky to have many beautiful and varied gardens to visit and we will go to different gardens each day to sketch and paint. Your leader will guide you in choosing a composition and recreating the colours and shapes you see. In some gardens there will be opportunities to paint reflections of the lakes.
Suitable for all levels of experience:
• Learn colour, composition and technique
• Share inspiration and exchange ideas
• Gain knowledge to continue painting at home
