Sketching & Painting



  Single Room


  Single Occ


  Double Occ






Paint with Chris Forsey in any water based media in Exmoor and the

stunning North Devon Coast, where you will sketch and paint cascading

rivers, moorland valleys, harbours and coastal scenes.


There are many stunning locations including the River Barle and valley,

the harbour town of Lynmouth which was called 'Little Switzerland' by

the Victorians and the villages of Winsford, Withypool and Malmsmead.

We will go out on location to sketch in watercolour a couple of times and

also sketch around the hotel and down the Barle Valley and will return to

the studio where we will explore the use of different media and complete

full blown paintings.

Chris is a very experienced painter and enthusiastic teacher, mostly

specialising in landscape subjects. He has a distinctive style in his work,

with atmosphere, light and colour of great importance. He uses

demonstration and one-to-one teaching approaches to help the student

understand how to explore a free and expressive approach in their own

work using combinations of water-based media.
