Treglos Hotel







  Single Room

Paint along the rugged North

Cornwall Coast with Barry

Herniman in Watercolour.

The holiday is based at

Treglos Hotel, a beautiful 4-

star hotel just a stones throw

from Constantine Bay with

views to Trevose Head. We

will paint a wide range of

subjects including a selection

of the harbour towns of

Padstow, Port Isaac and

Boscastle, The Camel Trail

and the coastline such as

Trevone, Constantine Bay,

Trevose Head and Bedruthan


The main emphasis of Barry's teaching is on watercolour 'sketching'

which he refers to as 'information gathering'. His intention is not for

guests to produce tight masterpieces but rather quick, spontaneous,

vibrant sketches that are works of art in their own right but in the

process you are able to soak up the atmosphere of the place.

He will do this by producing 'Working Demos' on site throughout each

day, where he will be painting the scene in manageable, 'bite sized

chunks', so you can paint along with him on a step-by-step basis, if you

wish. This will enable you to get the most out of his expert knowledge,

the most from the scene and the most out of your paintings.

Barry will give plenty of one-to-one tuition and with his approachable

light-hearted character he will help you find a method of working that

suits you best.
