Art Centres & holidays

PAINTING HOLIDAY TO TURKEY 10 – 16 May 2023.
There are just a final three spaces available on this trip to join Catherine painting this stunning area of Turkey. Capture ancient ruined cities, boats on azure waters and narrow white washed towns in pen and watercolour. Trips are included – there’ll be an opportunity to sun yourself on a boat trip to a sunken port and sit in amphitheatres soaking up the atmosphere. As well as accompanying the tours and giving painting instruction on location, Catherine will be running painting sessions at a poolside villa and you can even try your hand at painting Turkish pots with a local craftsman.
The hand picked accommodation includes rooms with views over the harbour and hotel pool. Email Catherine here for enquiries.

What you can expect:
I like to create a relaxed environment, free from the stricture of “rules” of watercolour. My gravity painting techniques rely less on fine motor skill and more on opening up to “go with the flow”. No complex theories, just practical suggestions about how I compose my paintings, my favourite colour collections and troubleshooting solutions. Stepped demonstrations of how to drop in pure colour, salt and other interventions.

some comments from delegates:
“I was so pleased to have experienced Catherine’s art class and …truly amazed at her extraordinary talent which blew me away not to mention what a gorgeous person she is. I won’t give up my day job yet to become a painter but it was really interesting to see what on earth I would create when given the time just to paint.”
“Catherine, the art teaching was fabulous and I’d love to try one of your courses”
“I am enjoying getting to grips with watercolours and to tapping into my own creativity. See below for the picture I produced at Brecon (Mentoring Plus Corporate Wellbeing Weekend) which I have framed as I love the colours so much!”
“Thanks again for your fantastic and innovative intro to watercolours.”
