About the Workshop

This week will focus on how to represent the unique light of Provence, retaining the transparency and clarity of watercolour, and allowing the painting to shimmer and sparkle. You will be going out paiting in the villages and landscape around Les Bassacs and Paul will teach through a combination of demonstrations and individual help. He will take you through the processes of achieving the painting you want by starting with preliminary sketching pencil, thinking and planning ahead, blocking in shadows and values to quickly capture the light and building up detail with paint. Paul comments “I love the free-flowing paint effects and the way the pigment can be manipulated on paper with amazing energy”.
