Paint Beautiful French

Villages & the stunning

landscapes in the Luberon

region of Provence with

Barry Herniman.

We will paint some of the

most beautiful villages in

France including Gordes,

Rousillon, Cucuron,

Lourmarin and Goult. We will

also paint the amazing

colours of the ochre fields,

stunning panoramas,

chateaux, gorges, windmills

and much more.

You will be truly blown away

by the scenery!

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.
