Painting Holidays in France & Spain

In May 2023 I will be running a drawing & painting holiday in France at La Roane and in August 2023 I'll be running another in Spain at Cortijo Romero.

France: 17th - 24th May OIL PAINTING

Spain: 26th Aug - 2nd Sept WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

La Roane is a fantastic venue situated in the rolling countryside near Toulouse in southern France. This will be the third drawing & painting course at La Roane and will focus on oil painting and sketching from life.


Cortijo Romero is a beautiful venue, situated at the feet of the Sierra Nevada mountains in southern Spain. This will be the sixth drawing & painting holiday at Cortijo Romero. The course will focus on watercolour landscape painting.

Both venues have wonderful natural surroundings and views. We will be working with various materials to focus on expressive mark making, understanding colour, portraying light and shadow, observational drawing, mastering perspective, composition and more. Some materials are provided along with drawing boards for each person. Most of our work takes place outside, in the grounds of the two venues and in the landscape nearby; with warm temperatures each day it is perfect weather for drawing and painting in the open air. Both venues include airport transfers, full catering with amazing food and many extras such as visits to local towns and beauty spots.


Everyone is welcome to attend whether you are a complete beginner or have more experience.


Both venues arrange all bookings, airport transfers and other details - to book please visit their website at:



In previous years the courses and locations were hugely enjoyed by everyone. We had sunny, warm weather, allowing us to work out of doors for the duration of the course. Everyone created many beautiful drawings and paintings. The catering, accommodation and support from the very friendly hosts was fantastic with excursions in the landscape and the beautiful towns nearby.
