An Overview of the Week
The closest airport for International flights is Nice. I will endeavour to pick you up at the airport or have our chef pick you up.
Arrival Saturday afternoon, after 2pm Airport Nice
After 4 pm Train Station Les Arcs Draguignan.
Arrive at our Farm house in Provence for a rest before our evening meal and an introduction to our week ahead.
Late breakfast and a day of basic water colour techniques. We have lunch at home and will stop around 4 pm for a late afternoon walk or you can our local vineyard. Drinks before dinner at 7 pm.
Tourtour – a visit to this glorious medieval mountain top village with vast panoramic views. We paint the distant mountains in the morning and after a picnic lunch we paint the roof tops and the pretty church in the distance. You will learn colour, distance and perspective today.
Tuesday morning is market morning. Lorgues market happens to be one of the best markets in Provence and we spend a few hours there and have breakfast and coffee in one of the local cafes. This is a good moment to buy your loved ones little gifts. We go home for lunch and after some demonstrations you will paint a scene of your choice at our house. We will finish at 5pm in time for a walk and a rest before dinner.
Lets go To Saint Tropez for the day. Spring is a perfect time to paint in Saint Tropez. We spend the day painting the colourful fishing boats in the pretty port and have our picnic looking out over the sea. Before heading home we have ice creams and teas in the famous Place des Lices where no matter what the weather the locals are drinking pastic and playing boules.
The morning is spent at home going over our paintings and things you may have struggled with and want help with. Or just finishing paintings. After lunch we go on a magical trip to The Commanderie de Peyrassol full a Knights templar Vineyard and Sculpture Park a great place to visit and paint. Home in time for a break before dinner.
A ‘stay at home’ day and spend the day finishing paintings brushing up on the techniques you have learned during the week and having our own personal exhibition late afternoon with champagne and canopes before our last yummy dinner together.
We take you to the Airport or Train Station in the morning…
