Key Details

Paint Historic Wells, Somerset

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 buildings.

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.

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 as well as 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.
