Paint and sketch in small groups with Allan in beautiful locations

  • Watercolour painting and skteching outdoors in a relaxed group atmosphere with a tutor that enables you to find your best.
  • Work at your own pace and learn how to see and identify topics that you love in a beautiful  region of SW France.


Allan's  approach is to simplify and he offers offers suggestions and guidance prompted by a lifetime’s experience, first as a teacher, then a successful professional artist who holds workshops worldwide on sketching and painting. Outdoor subjects will no longer overwhelm you and you will become comfortable at finding that view that you love in the surrounding countyside and villages of SW France..

Allan’s belief is that there is no ‘right’ way to sketch; only you can decide that. But, as you absorb the numerous small yet vital stages he describes as he demonstrates and talks you through a sketch or painting., from first sight to completed work, you will quickly recognise those elements that might work for you, too.
