Join Rob & Sian Dudley on this unique opportunity to receive tuition from

either one of them or to draw on the wealth of knowledge from both of



We will spend some time out on location gathering information through

observation, sketches and photographs which will then be developed into

full blown paintings in the studio. Some of this time will be spent out in the

grounds of the hotel with the landscaped gardens including the lake with

reflections and the stream which runs through a group of trees giving

interesting play of light and shade.

We will also get out in the countryside and paint along the Brecon and

Monmouth Canal at places such as Goytre Wharf and/or Govilon Wharf

as well as Keepers pond on the edge of the Brecon beacons with views

of Sugar Loaf mountain near Abergavenny and Pen-y-Fan in the Brecon

Beacons giving plenty of variety of painting subjects.

Rob & Sian are both skilled in all aspects of watercolour and can help you

achieve your goals. On this Rob will focus on his passion for the broad

brush techniques of landscapes and Sian will show you to focus on closer

subjects by putting in detail into the smaller parts of the subject matter.

Rob will show you tricks for getting the amazing effects of water, light

and reflections so you get the most from your painting. With his

enthusiastic approach he will teach you many tips and techniques

through demonstrations and plenty of one-to-one teaching. He will show

you how to simplify scenes with the use of tone and colour.

Sian approaches each person's needs at a highly individual level and is

perfectly happy working with beginners as well as more experienced

painters who feel in need of new inspiration to make more progress.

Her interest in the exciting properties of watercolour lends itself to an

approach that encourages students to discover when to control the

medium and when to allow its freedom.
