How will it work?

Each morning we will be dropped off by mini-bus and we will either go on a linear or a circular walk where we will walk a short distance and then spend time sketching. Lunch will be a packed lunch giving us flexibility and will be at a place where we can do more sketching.


We will then continue on route sketching and walking and will be picked up by mini-bus at our destination for linear walks or back at the start point for circular walks.


Walks will have some ups and downs, given the nature of Exmoor National Park. However, they will be more of a stroll than a route march and each section will be around a mile and we will cover around 3-4 miles by the end of the day, so it is only suitable for those with good mobility.


Non-sketching partners can come on the stroll or go on a more strenuous route as they wish.


Sketch-books will be provided but you need to bring and carry all your own equipment so only bring limited equipment and travel sets on the walk.


However, some studio work will be included in order to produce full paintings from your sketches so please bring all your normal equipment with you on the holiday, a list will be provided nearer the time.





About Your Tutor

David is your ideal tutor for this exciting opportunity as he creates bold, loose watercolours full of light and atmosphere. He will teach you how to paint simple, uncluttered sketches that have that spontaneous feel to them.

David will help you choose the right composition so you can paint simple, yet dynamic scenes. His approachable teaching style will enable you to get the most from your sketches and he will show you how to paint sketches in a free and loose style.

He will demonstrate a scene each day and give tips and techniques the rest of the time through advice and thumbnail sketches and will spend much of his time giving one-to-one tuition.




Where will we go?

Possible routes will be from the Moors to the coastal village of Porlock Weir, along the Barle Valley and down the Lyn Valley through Watersmeet to Lynmouth.
