Beginners & Novice Painters
Susan Griffiths – London
Christina Farr – San Francisco
Our painting holiday is suitable for both beginners and improvers. The majority of guests who come out painting are new to pitching an easel outdoors and painting on the spot. Some have never painted before and others are familiar with different mediums or artistic techniques. However, so far with no exceptions all our guests have been pleasantly surprised by what they have learned and what they have achieved.
It is all the more intimidating when your first encounter happens in a public place. However guests need not feel nervous. Paul has a way of teaching that will steer you through the process move by move. He’ll guide your hand and eye at each stage so that the final result will be pleasing and you will neither be embarrassed or disappointed.
As the week progresses and you understand more of the technique he will become less involved in your painting and let you have free reign. By the fifth day you should feel confident enough to take an easel out by yourself and paint a picture that you can be pleased with. Obviously it takes professional painters years to develop a slick and unique style but taking this course will help you avoid many wasted hours and much frustration.
