Paint with Dave White in

Acrylic in Exmoor and the

stunning North Devon Coast,

where you will paint the Sea

& Sky plus cascading rivers,

reflections, harbours and

coastal scenes.

This holiday is designed for

all those artists wishing to

develop their skills in creating

dynamic seascapes. Whether

you want to paint land based

or deep sea seascapes this

holiday will allow you to

explore many acrylic

techniques in producing your

own seascape paintings in

your own style.

There are many stunning locations but this holiday will focus on the River

Barle and valley, the coast and harbour town of Lynmouth with

Watersmeet and the cascading water of the East & West Lyn rivers into

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

the Victorians and Porlock Weir.

The holiday will be sketching paintings in acrylics and drawings on

location allowing you to look at and represent the sea and sky in a new

light. Examining the big picture and the microcosm will allow you find

more source material in depicting the sea and sky in the future. We will

then turn these sketches into full blown paintings back in the studio.

Dave White is the author of the international best selling book "Sea and

Sky in Acrylics". He is a seasoned and renowned art tutor who is a

champion of creative gifts and you can be sure to be encouraged in your

pursuit of improved ability to paint the sea

You will learn not only the application of traditional artistic techniques

such as aerial and linear perspective, colour mixing and composition but

also the unique application techniques of Acrylics and some of Dave's

own techniques of this media to dramatic Seascapes.
