Why venture out into the real world to paint!
There are many popular art tours happening all over the world offering to enrich the travel and share the experience of painting together.   
This workshop is for artists who are uncomfortable with the concept of painting on site. They may feel exposed, inadequate or simply frustrated with their results.  Or maybe they just want to feel prepared or become more practised. This is time to learn how to choose, set up and capture the scene. Bring your preferred medium – pastel/acrylic/watercolour.
We will paint on site then bring the work back to the studio each day to assess results and decide what the next step might be and possibilities of improving. It will aim to sharpen your decisions in all stages and help you to relax with the process.
The afternoons will spring from the morning’s painting.— what is the next step?   We will each possibly have a different ‘next step’.
