W hether you are a beginner or already paint these painting holidays suit everyone who loves or wants to learn to paint. Under the guidance of Tess Baker’s attentive tuition come and enjoy painting the landscapes and seascapes of St Tropez, the Camargue, Aix en Provence, St Remy Les Baux, poppy fields, lavender fields, sunflowers and much, much more.
You will discover the magic of painting in nature and creating your own part of it. The alchemy of water, paint, paper, sun and breeze. Composition and perspective which takes some understanding. You will learn all the basics of water colour techniques in the first few days. And will continue to be taught techniques all through the course. Of course you can paint in your preferred medium and will be taught techniques how to mix and learn about colour. How best to use your brushes and paint to get that extra special effect. Find your own unique way of painting. Take home with you knowledge that you can practise and improve on.
Paint Provence Paints Plein-Air
From the moment Paint Provence with Tess picks you up from the airport to the moment we drop you off, you will be catered for. Pretty and comfortable accommodation, a swimming pool to relax by and great food cooked by our personal chef. In the evening we eat in the glow of the setting sun on the terrace under the medlar tree with the sound of sleepy crickets and bees lulling us into a serene mood after our days painting. Wine tasting, visiting markets and painting in beautiful places with fantastic picnics which are more often than not the envy of all around us, are all part of these fun and instructive painting trips.
Paint Provence with Tess. April 29th to May 5th.
Saturday May 27th – June 3rd
A week spent painting some of the most glorious birds in and around the salt marshes of the Camargue.
