A Typical Day

  • After breakfast each morning, we’ll set off to our nearby painting location.
  • Simon will help you set up, suggesting the best composition and techniques for that particular scene, often with a quick demonstration.
  • Chairs, easels and boards plus all materials are supplied on our art holidays but feel free to bring your favourite brushes and paints.
  • We’ll paint till around 12.30pm when we break for lunch
  • In the afternoon, you will have a choice of either continuing painting at the day’s location. On the other hand you can return to your accommodation or our studio to finish off your morning’s painting.
  • Dinner will be served at a nearby restaurant or in our courtyard garden in Pouzolles.
