Painting in the Luberon/Languedoc, one of the hearts of Provence!  The amazing red and yellow ochre rocks in contrast with the bright red poppies and the purple of the lavender are a must at this time of year.

Arrival after noon: I will pick you up from either train station or Airport.

These few days will be filled with lots of learning and fun. I will be providing breakfast and dinners along with water and wine, teas and

Roussillon is one of the exceptionally beautiful places in Provence; yellow and red ochre and vineyards and poppy fields, amazing villages and acres of cherry trees. There is so much to see and paint see.

We will have dinner at the villa on the Wednesday and start the four day painting course on the Thursday morning. I will begin with teaching you all the basic techniques and then move on to composition and perspective. The weather is generally wonderful at this time of year so most of our painting will be plein-air. I will take you to the beautiful villages of Minerbres, Bonnieux, Roussillon and Lourmarin. You will learn many different techniques and I will help you to find your own unique way of painting.

As with all my painting trips I like to keep the group small, so that you can all have your own individual tuition as well as group tuition.

The cost for this trip is €1250, payable in advance.

See you soon I hope!
