A one-on-one intensive painting workshop “en plein air” at a bridge, garden park or château tailored to the skill level of the student. Beginners will focus on the basics, drawing and key watercolor techniques. For the more advanced we’ll expand the foundation of watercolor painting, trying new techniques of approaching watercolor.

All Day Workshop, about 6 hours: 230 Euros / $300 USD 

Small Group-

Up to three people. After the on-site demonstration, students will set up and begin painting. I’ll give each painter hints and suggestions all through during the painting session.

All Day Workshop, about 6 hours: 180 Euros / $240 USD per person

Sketching in Watercolor Workshop-

This is a unique workshop focusing on how to capture quick and fleeting impressions in our sketchbooks. We’ll paint on site, in cafes, on benches in a park or on the river. I’ll demonstrate how I approach sketching in watercolor in my own journal and then students will work in their own sketchbooks. 

We’ll move to 2 or 3 different venues, maybe more as time allows. Paints, pencils, brushes, watercolor sketchpad, small container for water and a desire to grab a quick moment in paint are all that is needed!
