Julie and Lyn are excited to visit and paint in the fabulous Capertee Valley next March 22 to March 31 (9 nights, 7 days to paint + 1 free day). It is 240 kms west of Sydney and a painters paradise if you love historic houses/rocky slopes/rugged escarpments/hidden waterways and being in one of the favoured painting territory of a select few of Australia’s professional artists, it’s a place to spend good painting time.
