Paint ‘Lakes, Mountains & Rivers’ in the Lake District with Barry Herniman.

We will paint at selected secluded spots around Lake Windermere, Coniston and/or Ullswater plus we will paint at places such as Elterwater in the Langdale Valley or Hawkshead. We will also paint a selection of bridges, waterfalls, cascading rivers, rocks, villages, churches and castles.

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

The holiday will be based at the well known Langdale Chase and is a fantastic location for a painting holiday as there are plenty of painting spots around the grounds as well as cracking views of Lake Windermere and is ideally situated for all the surrounding painting locations.

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.
