As you may be aware I have provided watercolour painting demonstrations & workshops to art clubs and societies up and down the country for the last few years which have I am glad to say been very favourably received. However over the last year I have noticed that a lot of people who saw me painting at art fairs were asking me if I done workshops and looking disappointed when I said I only done them for art clubs.
Yes! I know I have been a bit slow at catching on but at long last I have decided to do something for those of you who would like to attend a workshop with me but maybe don’t currently belong to a local art club. This year I will be putting on a limited number of watercolour landscape painting workshops at Brantwood on the Eastern shores of lake Coniston.
Not only is Brantwood the perfect location because of the scenery but also very apt as it was the home of the late John Ruskin who was the leading English art critic of the Victorian era, as well as an art patron, draughtsman, watercolourist, a prominent social thinker and philanthropist. The staff at Brantwood are always looking to promote artists and the arts throughout the local area so were very happy when I approached them about doing some workshops there. So I am happy to say that I will be putting on four workshops there this year. Each workshop will be limited to 12 places each so if you want to go on one make sure you book up quickly. I look forward to meeting some of you!
