Paint beautiful Coastal Scenes of Jersey

Join Barry Herniman on this

exciting opportunity to paint

in Jersey where we will paint

some beautiful coastal

scenes and harbours.

The holiday is based at The

Somerville Hotel, a beautiful

4-star hotel just a stones

throw from St Aubin's

Harbour with views over the

harbour and across the bay.

We will paint a wide range of

subjects including a selection

of St Aubin's Harbour, Gorey

Castle & Harbour, La

Corbiere Lighthouse, La Rocq

& Le Hocq

as well as Rozel Bay and Bouley Bay on the north coast and more.

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.
