A wonderful three-day course learning to paint outside with oils from one of the most experienced landscape painters working in Cornwall, Amanda Hoskin.

Amanda Hoskin is deservedly among the most popular landscape painters in the region today. Under her expert guidance, students are guided to tackle painting landscapes in oils with the dramatic West Cornwall coastline as their inspiration. Amanda is a supportive and genial companion and tutor, ensuring that each student feels confident as they approach their work, no matter what their previous experience. 

This course gives opportunities for demonstrations from the artist with a palette knife and brush techniques among many other tools that she has learnt to master, plus plenty of hands-on painting time out on the dramatic Cornish coastline.
