About your trip:
Narrow streets, a small square, old houses and the blue sea! These are some of the things that characterise Greece, and Samos is no exception.
These, beautiful landscapes and small town scenes, are what we will capture during our daily sketches, and later put down on paper using watercolour.
We will be staying in atmospheric, Studio Diamonds, a family run guest house. Every day we gather in the courtyard, where Trine will host a practical demonstration, and give us insight into some of the many techniques she uses in her own work. Then we will depart for our daily excursion, where we will sketch and draw our chosen motifs.
We will paint and sketch until around 2pm. Then its time to hit the beach an have a refreshing swim.
Lunch and dinner can be enjoyed at one of the many local restaurants/cafes, at your own expense, along the waterfront.
Theory lessons will include perspective drawing, color theory, the the use of a view-finder as well as techniques, such as washes, lifting and painting wet in wet.
The week culminates in a small private viewing, and a glass of bubbly under the summer sky.
A selection of black pens
