Twelve days of spectacular painting in Far North Queensland. Explore and paint the lush tropics, visit the ancient Daintree Rainforest and discover the remote, unspoilt beauty of Cape York Peninsula. The workshop starts in Cairns, the heart of Tropical North Queensland, a vibrant city that blends a laid back tropical sensibility with a buzzing multicultural lifestyle. We then travel to the frontier town of Cooktown followed by the beauty of Port Douglas.
Join me in the stunning South of France, following the footsteps of Renoir and Matisse, on my upcoming watercolour workshop, September 2023. Twelve spectacular days of painting, sketching and exploring one of the most picturesque regions of France, including the medieval walled village of Vence and surrounding hinterland of Provence together with the beautiful coastal town of Villefranche sur Mer in the heart of the French Riviera. Don’t miss this trip of a lifetime where I will show you the best of each region and how to capture the splendour of France on paper and canvass.
