Holiday Types

Ever wanted to Simply Sketch & Paint with more emphasis on simply painting than on tuition...well now is your chance!

We are offering 6 full days painting and 6 nights accommodation for almost the same price as a regular 4 day painting holiday.

The emphasis will be on sketching where you will be able to sketch some iconic spots and to reach some of the lesser known places by sketching and walking for some of the time with our expert walking guide and there will be opportunity for you to relax and produce full blown paintings either en-plein air or back in the studio.

This holiday combines our Sketching & Walking holidays with our Sketching & Painting holidays along with some regular en-plein air painting opportunities and some studio work.

The exact itinerary will be agreed nearer the time but essentially the plan is as follows :-

Sketching & Walking (2 Days) where we will walk 3-4 miles and get to sketch in places not accessible by car or on regular painting holidays. (If you feel unable to walk this distance you can always meet the group at the destination)

Sketching & Painting (1-2 Days) where we will go to a place with an abundance of painting subjects and sketch and walk around the area, village or town. We may also drive to different locations during the day (We will walk a total of about 1 mile in the day)

Regular 'En Plein Air' on Location Painting Day (1-2 Days) where there will be the opportunity to do full blown En-Plein Air paintings at a location, which will include the opportunity for a second painting if you wish. Of course on these days you can continue to sketch if you want or mix it up as you prefer.

'Around The Hotel' (1-2 Days) where there is plenty to sketch down the valley or you can spend some or all of the time in the studio to produce full blown paintings from earlier sketches.

There will also be walking routes at all locations visited for your non-painting partners and they are also welcome to join the group on the sketching & walking days or go on a longer walk as preferred.
