I really enjoyed my five-day course last week. Thank you both for being so welcoming and positive. I learned a great deal from your tuition and the whole experience was a great confidence booster. I won’t forget your lovely cottage, dog, relaxing walks and company and one last mention, the wonderful food.

Courses Abroad

There were inspirational views of Naples’ Bay to sketch and paint, from the hotel. Painting trips, provided diversity in the ruins of Pompeii, the gardens of Ravello, the churches and ancient streets of Positano and Amalfi. Expert tuition was provided by our hosts Janet and Peter. A delightful trip.

The course was very well organised. The quality of the presentation and demonstration videos was exceptional, very professional and easy to follow. The timing of the course was perfect in that it gave me a focus in these difficult times. I was running out of ideas of what to paint. As the course progressed I found that my artistic juices were flowing again!
