Dear fellow painters,
A very happy new year. Change is in the air and I am excited to share lots of new arty events that can help get you in the mood to paint:
New Zoom Classes:
If you are feeling a little rusty and looking for some quiet painting practice at home, why not sign up for a no pressure online Zoom class?
Wednesday 18 January (2-4) Cyclamen celebration: based around a beautiful potted Cyclamen, this session will look at the cheering subject of sunlight filtering through petals – an opportunity to practice layering as well as those brushwork skills. Choose to paint from Catherine’s source image or your own plant at home.
Friday 24 February (2-4) Winter sunbeams: we will jump onto Zoom again and look at an image straight out of my new book. I will be letting you into the secret of how to suggest beams breaking through an atmospheric woodland scene.

Painting holiday to Kalkan Turkey
11-16 May 2023 – join me on the coast in Turkey for a painting holiday to the ruins and waters around Kalkan. Accommodation for this fantastic trip lies next to the harbour in Kalkan old town. Nearby painting subjects are numerous – from Roman pillars reflected in pools, to bougainvillea clad white-washed buildings, to boats in the harbour and ancient stairways rising out of the sea. We will guide you around our favourite cafes and amphitheatres in which we can sit and paint the view. Airport transfers and transport to the sights are included and there’s even a chance to try your hand at decorating Turkish pottery. I will be summing up on artistic techniques and recapping our days at in-Villa talks.
On Sunday 12 March (10-3:30): I am holding a Line and wash: Holiday sketchbooks workshop here in Bath to help you prepare for this year’s travels.
Email me for questions or to sign up.
I hope to see some of you soon!
