Cober Hill Painting Holiday, Cloughton, Scarborough  

Monday April 1st to Friday April 5th 2013

We had a great week; it was lovely to see my regular students and a couple of new faces.

I did several daytime painting exercises in watercolour, acrylic, collage and pen and wash. My evening demonstrations included collage of a café scene, a watercolour of

Ephesus in Turkey, a pastel seascape, and an acrylic of the Vondel Park in Amsterdam.

Cober Hill has a big spacious room to paint in, kitchen for constant cups of coffee and tea, full board, excellent food and ensuite accommodation and no single supplement!

A popular holiday, if you are interested in attending this course I will be running two more weeks at Cober Hill in September and November 2013
