2017 (closed)-The Mornington Peninsula in Victoria is brimming with so much to see and paint. On the workshop we painted the unique beach boxes, ocean beaches, vineyards, stately historic homes and gardens, cafes and markets. We enjoyed the gourmet food, speciality shops and coastal walks of this beautiful part of Victoria. The art time was extensive, guided by two of Australia’s well known, prizewinning artists and experienced tutors. Artists could paint, draw, sketch or photograph this beautiful area or just enjoy the demonstrations and company.
