About the Workshop

This week will help you to understand how composition, colour and tone can be used to describe a feeling for the light of Provence and to communicate a real sense of place. The emphasis will be on working outside, but Paul’s teaching also includes some demonstrations and sessions in the studio. In the landscape Paul will help you to make decisions about what to tackle in terms of subject matter and composition and how to pursue that in colour and form. Work can be made in oils, acrylics, watercolour or drawing.
