Portugal - Urban Watercolour Sketching

No Dates at present 



Tutoring by Trine Pettigrew        

Experience : All levels 

Medium: Watercolour and ink 


This week-long course will be all about water, pigments and ink. 


Travel light, all you need is your favourite sketchbook, watercolour travel palette and a black pen, and we are off!


We will get inspired by the many interesting narrow streets and old houses, harbour front and the many nesting storks, in the town of Portimão. 


Every day there will be an optional morning lesson in different watercolour techniques, contour drawing, viewfinder use and much more. 


After our morning lesson, you are free to paint. Trine will be supervising throughout the day, and ensure that everybody gets personal attention with advice and tips. 


At the end of the week, we will have a private viewing and critique. 


NOTE: If you prefer to paint in acrylic, you are most welcome to do so, instead of watercolour.
