26th June - Watercolour En Plein Air 
Watercolour is a perfect medium for painting out of doors, capturing mood,
light and atmosphere at first hand. With demonstrations and supportive
guidance, Paul will offer advice on choosing subjects, planning, composition
and his creative strategy for getting the best from an 
on-site painting. 

Experience in the basics useful.


18th September - Drawing from Observation
Drawing is a fundamental creative skill, a way of seeing the world around us, exploring form,
structure, perspective, texture and tone, as well as developing ideas for possible paintings. 
Paul will guide you through his techniques for sketching and drawing from life in pencil,
charcoal, pen and ink, taking the surrounding gardens, house and views as inspiration.

Suitable for all levels.


27th October - Atmospheric Interiors in Watercolour
Room interiors can make exciting subjects, be it a shed, old barn, restaurant
or stately home. Windows, doors, figures and reflective surfaces of floors and 
furniture create dramatic forms and light effects. Paul will combine studio practice
and working from life, helping you explore the atmospheric potential of
room interiors. 

Experience in the basics useful.


7th November - Autumn and Winter Landscapes in Watercolour
The seasons of autumn and winter provides a wonderful range of subjects for the
landscape painter. Paul will cover his techniques for capturing trees, foliage, rivers
and buildings, along with the effects of mist, low sunlight and shadows falling 
across snow.

Experience in the basics useful.
