Amanda Hoskin is deservedly among the most popular landscape painters working in Cornwall today. Over the three days of this course students will be helped to tackle painting landscapes in oils with the dramatic West Cornwall coastline as inspiration. Amanda is the most generous of tutors and makes everyone feel that they can capture the landscape and helps each student to feel that working in oils doesn't need to be intimidating at all.

This course gives opportunity for both demonstrations from the artist with palette knife and brush techniques among many other tools that she has learnt to master plus lots of hands on painting time out in the dramatic Cornish coastline.

An exciting three days learning to paint outside with oils from one of the most experienced landscape painters working in Cornwall today.

A reasonable level of fitness is required for this course as there will be some coastal path walking and walking over uneven surfaces to get to a few of the venues.


Amanda also teaches on our Tresco Painting Holiday

'I had not painted for 4 years and had never used oils, I was rather anxious but Amanda`s warm personality and experience calmed me down. Amanda is extremely generous with her time and skill and I`m pleased with the techniques I learnt.'
