People and Places: A Painting Retreat

Portraiture and the human figure coupled with stunning landscapes, gardens and architecture have captured the imagination and inspired many artists over the centuries.


We will begin our art retreat by looking at a variety of paintings from different times and places for inspiration. Each day will have a different focus making full use of our beautiful surroundings. We will make drawings and colour studies in the mornings and spend the afternoons in the art room developing our paintings inspired by our studies. We will use a range of drawing and painting materials.
