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.



This holiday will involve sketching outside with either pencil, pen, charcoal and/or watercolour where you can gather information in these sketches quickly and easily and then we will use the sketches to paint full paintings in the peace and tranquility of hotel studio or the beautiful hotel grounds.


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.
