WYE VALLEY 2020
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Paul Talbot-Greaves on this opportunity to paint in the Wye Valley. We will sketch on location along the River Wye at places such as Symonds Yat and near Tintern Abbey.
We will capture the light in The Wye Valley with the extremes of light and dark across the valley and paint the light and reflections on the river. Other places where light and darks occur with reflections on water that we may go to are Cannop Ponds in the Forest of Dean near to the hotel. With Paul you will sketch and take photographs on site, where we can concentrate on composition finding and absorb subjects, before
returning to the studio to work on a finished painting. Although the studio time is more controlled and comfortable, Paul still likes to use a loose, rapid approach to painting, usually completing a piece in around two hours.
Paul will lead by demonstration, gathering participants around a table to watch close hand, take notes and discuss his techniques and approaches. He helps painters with their own work, giving individual tuition, demonstrations, offering helpful and technical advice.
