Sketching & Painting



  Single Room


  Single Occ


  Double Occ






Join Paul Talbot-Greaves on this opportunity to paint in the Wye Valley.

We will sketch on location along the River Wye at places such as Symonds

Yat and near Tintern Abbey.


We call capture the light in The Wye Valley with the extremes of light and

dark across the valley and paint the light and reflections on the river.

Other places where light and darks occur with reflections on water that

we may go to are Cannop Ponds in the Forest of Dean near to the hotel.

(This is a re-scheduled holiday from earlier in the year as a result of the

restrictions in place at the time of the lockdown)

With Paul you will sketch and take photographs on site, where we can

concentrate on composition finding and absorb subjects, before

returning to the studio to work on a finished painting. Although the studio

time is more controlled and comfortable, Paul still likes to use a loose,

rapid approach to painting, usually completing a piece in around two


Paul will lead by demonstration, gathering participants around a table to

watch close hand, take notes and discuss his techniques and approaches.

He helps painters with their own work, giving individual tuition,

demonstrations, offering helpful and technical advice.
