I'm so excited to be leading this 10-day plein air painting workshop in the south of France in the beautiful Perigord-Quincy region, in the heart of the Dordogne, land of painter’s light, wines, medieval castles, prehistoric caves, traditional French villages and markets, and countless amazing vistas.
This workshop-retreat is open to beginners and advanced artists. I'll teach and demonstrate daily, as well as provide plenty of one-on-one instruction at your easel, for those who wish it.
My own passion and practice are exploring the power of color to create light, dynamic movement, and feeling. For those who wish instruction this will be our focus.
We'll take excursions to painting locations and have sessions in studio where we can develop sketches while they are still fresh. There'll be plenty of time for pure peace, relaxation and enjoyment.
prices from €3400 (€1000 deposit)
Lodgings and most meals are included in the price. We'll be staying in the lovely Perigord Retreat, surrounded by lavender fields, orchards, organic gardens and blissful quiet, with it's outdoor spa and beautiful indoor pool. Enjoy exquisitely prepared French cuisine, the wines of the region, and that incredible light.
Travel easels, travel stools are provided, along with exclusive 24/7 access to the the generously lit and spacious Perigord Retreat art studio. I'll be working with gouache, my favorite plein air medium. You're welcome to bring your own favorite paints, or get supplied from our optional gouache kit of paint, brushes and papers. The kit and a suggested list of supplies will be available closer to the trip dates.
Registration is limited to 11 persons. If you'd like to be placed on the Waiting List for 2023, or have questions, contact me.
