Come along on a painting holiday at the beautifully restored, 200 year-old farmhouse, in the foothills of the Sierra Almijara in Spain.
Saturday 6th – 13th April
This is a one-week course, with tuition in sketching and painting. Working both En Plein air (working outdoors) and in the studio. You will be encouraged to experiment with new techniques and try new ways of working. We will be working in mainly watercolour but adding mixed media.
