Lake District Landscapes - Watercolour Workshops - Take Your Watercolours to the Next Level!
Watercolour Painting Workshops
Take your watercolours to the next level!
I will be holding a limited number of watercolour landscape painting workshops at Brantwood on the Eastern shores of Lake Coniston here in the beautiful, sunny (ocassionally!) English Lake district.
Places are strictly limited to 10 per workshop so please book early to avoid disappointment.
New workshop dates added for 2018!
Time to Next Workshop
Join me for one of a limited number of new watercolour workshops here in Cumbria at Brantwood on the eastern shores of Coniston. Brantwood was the home of the late John Ruskin victorian art critic and patron of the arts and this idyllic location has provided countless artists with inspiration over the years. During the workshop I will show you a number of techniques that I employ in my own painting that will help you to produce watercolour landscape paintings full of atmosphere, drama & texture. I will teach you how to recognise when it can be beneficial to ignore the so called rules of watercolour and most importantly show you how much fun the medium can be once you learn to loosen up a bit with it.
Workshops start at 10am and finish at 4pm with a break for lunch and you can either bring a packed lunch with you or if you fancy treating yourself (and why not!) you can can visit the on-site café which sells a selection of snacks & light lunches. Refreshments throughout the day will be provided free of charge and I will even throw in a chocolate biscuit or three.
I will provide watercolour paper and a drawing board for you to use on the day so all you need to bring is yourself your usual watercolour paints & brushes and an open mind and I guarantee that you will have fun, leave with a painting that you are proud of and more importantly have an armoury of tips & techniques that will help to ensure your future progress.
An information pack with more details and directions (map below) will be provided by email before your chosen workshop date but if you have any questions before you make your booking please feel free to contact me either by email or phone.
I look forward to meeting you!
(Please note that discount coupons cannot be redeemed against the cost of a workshop - sorry!)

Hi Greg Just wanted to say many thanks for a really enjoyable and informative day yesterday. Must admit my stomach sank when you revealed "our painting"! LOL! However, you shared your tips and techniques which made a great day in a great venue. Thanks for the inspiration! - Jackie Maher
Greg has a refreshing, almost rebellious approach to painting with watercolours, flying in the face of the “rule books”. From large format canvass through broad and chunky brushes to scraping with a blade his approach certainly gets the attention of the room and invites questions from the audience.- Grange Art Society
Hi Greg, Thank you for your waterfall demo, we all enjoyed it and hopefully helped us all to loosen up, you made it look very easy, needs lots of practice! We hope you enjoyed the evening and the ‘banter’, we did! - Bolton Art Circle
Just thought you should have another "thank you" for the great workshop you did for us at Knott End. The feedback was excellent at the following meeting - Over Wrye Art Society
We all enjoyed your demo and definitely learnt things we didn’t know before. You went a long way to de-mystifying watercolours for some of us, and those of us who tend to steer clear of this medium went home with a resolution to try it again.
We will most definitely keep you in mind for the future and pass on your name to any other society who might be interested. Thank you again.- Grange Art Society
Better late than never to say thank you on behalf of all members who attended your demonstration a couple of weeks ago. I have just had the glowing report from Gwyn after today's meeting. Everyone enjoyed it and felt they had picked up lots of tips on technique. Hope you enjoyed it.- Morecambe Bay Art & Craft Society
