Paint with Richard Holland in

Oils or Watercolours in

Exmoor and the stunning

North Devon Coast, where

you will paint cascading

rivers, moorland valleys,

harbours and coastal scenes.

There are many stunning

locations including the River

Barle and valley, the harbour

town of Lynmouth which was

called 'Little Switzerland' by

the Victorians and the

villages of Winsford,

Withypool and Malmsmead.

Richard is the ideal tutor for this type of holiday as he often sketches on

location with pen or pencil for speed and sometimes quick watercolours

as a means of information gathering. He will help you choose composition

and show you what to include and what to leave out when on location

sketching. He will then demonstrate building up a sketch to a full painting

back at the hotel to help you establish the approach you wish to take. He

will then give you plenty of one-to-one tuition enabling you to produce

full paintings in either oils or watercolours.
