Painting in Watercolour. Winter 2022.

discover L

8 week course starts Tuesday 8th February 2022. Afternoons from 13:30 - 16:30

An 8 week course aimed at beginners and people wanting to improve their watercolour painting. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 6 people with a "Pass Vaccinal".

The emphasis is on watercolour techniques, with the drawing elements kept to a minimum, so if you are a beginner, someone who has tried watercolours a little before or looking to improve your skills, I hope you will find the course helpful, relaxed and fun.

Each week we will look at different aspects of watercolour painting. Example topics might include (subject to change):

  • Painting skies with a wash
  • Textures such as stone
  • Painting trees
  • Landscape painting
  • Planning a painting by thinking in layers
  • Still life
  • Plants and flowers
  • Effective use of shadows

Some student work from previous courses:


Most weeks there will be a short practical demonstration, followed by plenty of time to work at your own pace with as much help and guidance as you would like.

We'll take a refreshment break roughly half way through the session.

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

Dates & Venue

The course will run on Tuesday afternoons from 13:30 to 16:30.

The course will start on Tuesday 8/2/2022 and finish on Tuesday 29/03/2022.

The venue will once again be 29 rue Sainte-Marie, Monflanquin which is a bright airy room in the village. Tea and coffee will be provided, but if you prefer fruit/herbal teas etc, please bring whatever you prefer.


I've tried to keep materials to a minimum and realise that some people may already have their own materials.

I will forward a suggested list of materials to participants with their confirmation of a place on the course.

Course cost

To provide a good level of personal attention and to avoid overcrowding I am limiting the number of places to 6 people. The total cost of the 8 week course is 120€ per person which includes all tuition, room hire and refreshments, payable on the first day by cash or credit/debit card.

Places will be allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis. To reserve your place, please either use the form below or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your contact details. In case there are more requests than places, I'll keep a waiting list.

Book with safety

All the information on this page assumes that any regulations in force due to the covid-19 pandemic will allow the course to take place. You do not need to pay until the first course session and will owe nothing should the course not be able to go ahead.

Should the situation change during the couse we will re-schedule dates for the remaining sessions once it is safe to do so.
