Paul is a highly respected coastal painter and has a unique approach to building up watercolour beginning with bold colours and tones combined with mixed media. This course will enable students to explore some of the most dramatic coves and cliff tops of West Cornwall's famous coastline with lots of tuition on composition, colour, tone, depicting water and the unusual tools and techniques Paul has built up in his working practice over the years.

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

Many of the venues for the Seascapes and Landscapes painting course will be different from Paul's previous Coast course at Newlyn School of Art so it is an exciting opportunity to experience some coastal sites which are off the beaten track.

All materials provided by the art school.


Paul also teaches on our Tresco Painting Holidays and One Year Mentoring course.

"Inspirational - it got me through a 5 year painters block - out of the comfort zone of my sketchbook and onto paintings completed in the field. A year ago I couldn't have imagined completing the paintings I've done since this summer. Thank you".
