About the Workshop

The week will make the most of watercolour painting in the beautiful Luberon valley, seeking out interesting compositions and capturing the unique light of Provence. Paul uses a three step approach to watercolour that is suited to both plein air and studio work, that will help you paint with clarity and energy.

You will learn to look for the building blocks of paintings in the villages and landscapes around Les Bassacs, making sketches, taking photographs for reference and working in watercolour. There will also be a chance to work in the studio where Paul will give demonstrations and relevant tutorials to help you along.
