Key Details

The main emphasis of Barry’s teaching is on watercolour ‘sketching’ which he refers to as “information gathering”.

His intention is not for guests to produce tight masterpieces but rather quick, spontaneous, vibrant sketches that are works of art in their own right but in the process you are able to soak up the atmosphere of the place.

He will do this by producing “Working Demos” on site throughout each day, where he will be painting the scene in manageable, “bite sized chunks”, so you can paint along with him on a step-by-step basis, if you wish. This will enable you to get the most out of his expert knowledge, the most from the scene and the most out of your paintings.

Barry will give plenty of one-to-one tuition and with his approachable light-hearted character he will help you find a method of working that suits you best.
