Join Paul Weaver on this exciting opportunity to paint some stunning

coastal scenes in the Lizard Peninsula.


The holiday is based at Housel Bay Hotel which is the most southerly

hotel in mainland Britain and so is ideally situated for reaching all the

painting locations around the Lizard Peninsula including the stunning

coastline around Lizard Point & Kynance Cove as well as harbours such

as Coverack and Porthleven both of which have an abundance of

painting subjects from lovely old buildings, thatched cottages, beautifully

coloured boats and coastal views. Within the grounds of the hotel we can

paint the stunning Lizard Point and Lighthouse. The hotel is also within

easy reach of beaches on the West Coast such as Gunwalloe Church

Cove and Porthallow on the East Coast of the Peninsula

The hotel has lovely gardens, with an outdoor terrace and the main

restaurant with magnificent panoramic sea and coastal views of the

Lizard Point. There are two restaurants each with good service, local

cuisine where you can enjoy lovely Cornish dishes.

An award winning artist, enthusiastic and encouraging tutor, Paul will

combine informative lessons with plenty of on-site sketching and


He will guide you through his techniques for capturing the mood and

atmosphere of this superb location.

With instructive demonstrations and personal guidance, he will offer

advice on choosing subjects, composition and tonal sketches, as well as

techniques for capturing the atmospheric effects of light and shade,

trees, skies, water and reflections, simplifying architecture and adding

figures to a scene.
