Learn to paint water, light and reflections in watercolour with Joe Francis

Dowden in Exmoor National Park and the stunning North Devon Coast.


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

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

the Victorians Watersmeet and Malmsmead where you will paint

cascading rivers, water, light and reflections.

He is good at one-to-one teaching and has an ability to work alongside

beginners and get them painting competently. He can also nurture more

advanced painters. His insights, tips and techniques are often simple but

they are followed by amateurs and professionals alike.

This course is part location and part studio based. We will do sketching of

the River Barle nearby to the hotel and visit places such as Malmsmead,

Landacre & Withypool. We will sketch reflections, water, rocks above and

below the water, white water cascading over rocks and a pack horse

bridge. We will come back to the studio and produce completed paintings

under Joe's careful guidance.
