Watercolours Outdoors - Summer 2018

New 8 week course for early summer 2018 at Galerie JS, Monflanquin.

A chance to paint in watercolours ‘en plein air’ in a relaxed and constructive small group with help and advice from a local artist.

This course is aimed at anyone wanting to paint and sketch outdoors - complete beginners are most welcome.

Whether you want to practice, learn drawing from life, improve your skills or gain confidence, I hope this course will have something for you.

Dates & Details

The course will run on eight Wednesday afternoons from 13:30 to 16:30, starting Wednesday 9th May 2018 and finishing on Wednesday 27th June 2018.

We will use Galerie JS on the Place des Arcades as a base for meeting, leaving materials and taking refreshments.

Most of our time will be spent painting different aspects of Monflanquin. You’ll have chance to try landscapes, buildings, flowers and architectural details such as the varied doorways.

Tea and coffee will be available at the gallery, but if you prefer fruit/herbal teas etc, please bring whatever you prefer.

The main language will be English, but if you can forgive my French, I would welcome any French speakers.


I would suggest a good quality watercolour book (or block) of paper intended for use with watercolours.

A small (portable) selection of watercolour paints and a pencil are essential, but fineliners and ink pens can be useful depending on what you prefer. A portable seat or cushion can also be useful..

Course cost

The cost of the eight week course will be 80€ per person, payable in advance. Numbers will be limited to a maximum of 10 people.
