Paint historic Wells, Somerset

with Michal Jasiewicz in

Watercolour. The holiday is

based at The Swan Hotel

which faces the cathedral as

it looks out onto Cathedral

Green and is just a walk

away from some amazing

painting subjects including

the architecture of the

Cathderal & Bishop's Palace.

There is also the more

modest but equally paintable

buildings in Vicar's Close and

around the Green.

We will also paint the moat, the grounds and the 'Wells' or Lakes in

Bishop's Palace as well as nearby countryside.

Michal loves the spontaneity and freshness that comes with watercolours

and he will inspire you to paint exciting watercolours where he places

great emphasis of light on a subject. As an architect he loves

architectural subjects and how the light falls on a building and he is the

ideal tutor to help you paint historical Wells. He loves combining the

formal shapes of architectural subjects with the freedom of much looser

expressionistic methods that demonstrate the amazing light bouncing off


He will adapt his teaching style to the requirements of each individual

from beginners to the advanced painters and will give plenty of one-to-

one tuition. He will do a demonstration at each location to help you

understand his interpretation of the scene and then will help guide you

through the painting process including composition, how to depict light,

colour and tone to dramatic effect.
