Travel to Southern France, 2023

Art & Wine plein air painting workshop & retreat

So thrilled to be leading this 10-day plein air painting workshop in the south of France in the beautiful Perigord-Quincy region! We'll be 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 be teaching and demonstrating, and there will be ample time for relaxing and discussing our work.

My 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. You're also welcome to come with us and simply paint.

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, exploration, relaxation and enjoyment!  

Full details and what's included.
