A Painting Break in beautiful Devon, learning to sketch and paint spring gardens or scenery. In late April, early shrubs, fruit trees and azaleas in gardens have fresh spring foliage and flower colour, and spring flowers are showing in borders and countryside. This studio and location based course covers colour mixing for spring scenes in gardens and landscape, with individual or small group help with particular painting skills as well as sessions to develop key skills including sketching, tonal values, composition, negative painting and colour mixing. Bring your chosen painting medium and portable sketching materials for outdoor work. We will visit one of Devon’s beautiful gardens with particular spring landscape interest to practice our skills.
