THE WORKSHOP FORMAT

As with all my workshops, beginners to advanced all welcome and I’ll guide you at your own level.
Our Workshops begin each morning in a cafe where we have coffee and do a warmup sketch for the day, along the lines of the subject we’ll be sketching on location. In early afternoon we take a lunch break and recharge our sketching batteries.
All week we’ll be be looking at a beautiful old doorway, church towers, winding alleyways, museums, galleries, gardens or anything which appeals and work on that, always with plenty of demos and guidance from me. We sometimes complete colour later, over a glass of wine before dinner.
Make your own arrangements to arrive in the city where we sketch, and find some lovely accommodation for yourself. (Recommendations below) We’ll all buy our own meals, drinks etc to keep it simple. (Allow €100+ daily)
Complete the booking form and secure your place for some incredible sketching with us.

The colours listed are my 12 go-to choice, so whatever brand of watercolour pans, and aquarelle pencils - get those colours only.
Bring a folding stool if you like, hat, sunscreen, and a big happy smile.
