Painting walks and tuition


colour wheel

This can be arranged at any location to suit you. It could be in your own house or garden, a hired space, or my house in the South Downs. I particularly welcome beginners and those with a little experience who would like to gain confidence with watercolours. If you would like to give a painting session as a gift, I can produce a customised voucher.

Long Man by Amanda Deighton

Painting walks can take a couple hours or all day. All materials are provided, unless you prefer to use your own. Bring a picnic lunch plus plenty of water for painting and drinking, appropriate clothing/ footwear & sunblock. I will provide waterproof cushions – you can bring your own chair if you feel able to carry it. The distance and difficulty of the walk will  suit the participants.  Some people may want to stay in one place and paint most of the time, concentrating on watercolour technique;  some may want to walk further, and focus on outdoor painting strategy, for instance  how to select part of a complicated view. When inquiring, please feel free to tell me exactly what you hope to get out of the session.  In the event of bad weather the walk will be re-arranged unless there is an indoor option.  I can arrange outdoor painting sessions for people with limited mobility. I will work with you to plan a walk where and when you want to go. If you would like to speak with me in person, my phone number is on the contact page.

We might walk along the meanders of the Cuckmere and paint on the beach, or high on the cliff tops of the Seven Sisters. Alternatively we could walk under the Downs and paint views such as those loved by the Boomsbury artists and Eric Ravilious.
