Paint historic Wells, Somerset

with Steve Hall 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.

Steve will use his friendly and relaxed approach to help you improve your

watercolour painting and create those simple yet dynamic images that he

admires in the works of Edward Seago and Edward Wesson.

There will be the opportunity for you to complete two pictures a day

under Steve's careful guidance. He will work alongside you helping you to

achieve your goals. Steve's style is one of simplicity, yet based on

observation of shapes and tonal values.

His objective will be to encourage you to capture the scene before you

with as little fuss as possible but with awareness of the important shapes

and forms that describe the view. By following his advice your work will

take on a more dynamic appearance leading to that 'wow' factor that we

all seek in our painting.
