We are pleased to announce a new painting course with a new tutor from the USA. The special week-long course is called ‘Plein Air Essentials’ in watercolors and gouache, and the tutor is Pamme Turner, from California in the USA. It will run from Saturday 9 July to Saturday, 16 July 2022.There is a link to a booking enquiry form below.
Pamme’s watercolour and gouache above is from the mission of San Juan Capistrano In California. Pamme says: “The Mission courtyard is a great motif here with the bright PINK gouache flowering tree—so lovely in the morning sunlight with shadows. There are two images here–one smaller sketch and the larger painting on smooth, tan cardboard. I’ve let the cardboard be one of the integral colors in the painting, for drama and effect. With a watercolor base of shadows ,the gouache is painted over for drama and “color pop”. My favorite part is the old wooden washtub in the sunlight.”
Pamme Turner is a professional artist and college professor with multiple degrees in the Fine Arts. She has BFA/MFA degrees in Fine Arts, technical expertise in multiple and diverse art mediums, and is currently a full-time professor and former EI Department Chair of Fine and Liberal Arts at Saddleback College in Southern California. She teaches Beginning through Advanced Watercolor and Oil/Acrylic Painting, Plein Air Painting, Intermediate/Advanced Studio Painting, Life Drawing, Ceramics and Art History.
She has taught art classes and art workshops all over the world and has more than 30 years of teaching experience. She says: “I am fascinated by the creative art-making process and encourage my students to experience that same joy in all of their works.” A previous student says: “An incredible workshop; more educational than a whole college semester! And so much more fun!”
In this lovely workshop you’ll learn to paint with both transparent and/or opaque mediums “en plein air”, with an emphasis on beautiful watercolour techniques. As well as painting in the glorious Tuscan countryside you will also be working in the light and airy Watermill studio. The course is designed for painters of all levels. Although we still have plenty of spaces, there has been a lot of interest in this course and now is the time to reserve your place to avoid disappointment.
9-16 July 2022 Still plenty of places
