The Week

Paint Provence with Tess our weeks painting course

Whether we are in Antigua, Palma, Venice or Provence the workshop structure remains the same for the week.

Saturday                                                                                                                                                                                                   Airport pick up, take it easy and settle in at 7 pm we all have dinner together. We take time to get to know one another and talk about the week ahead.

Breakfast at 9 am. Start class at 10 am with a stop for lunch, finish 4 pm.
On the first day you will become familiar with your materials and learn about colour and water colour techniques. We are surrounded by beauty so in the afternoon painting at home will be fun.

9 am – 12.00, I will go over the techniques needed for our afternoon painting trip, Composition and light and dark. We have lunch in the Villa and then go to one of our beautiful destinations to paint for the afternoon.

According to where we are in the World, this could be a Market morning, or visiting a local artist morning. Lunch is at the Villa and in the afternoon, I will spend an hour teaching simple perspective before putting into practise what you have just learned.

Wednesday                                                                                                                                                                                              Today is a full day out,
