Tropical Rainforest Antigua

With Paint Provence

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). Learn all the basics of water colour techniques in the first few days and will continue to be taught techniques all through the course. You can paint in your preferred medium and you will learn about colour and be taught techniques such as how to mix, and how best to use your brushes and paint to get that extra special effect. Find your own unique way of painting. Take home knowledge and techniques that you can practise and improve on.

Paint Provence Paints Plein-Air

Paint Provence with Tess Painting Holidays in France and Antigua.

Painting Plein-Air. A moment of magic in the poppy fields.

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. These fun and instructive painting trips include wine tasting, visiting markets and painting in beautiful places with fantastic picnics (which are often the envy of all around us!).
