About your trip: 

Small 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.


After a break in the middle of the day, where lunch will be served by Anna, our vegetarian chef, we will enjoy the slow pace of Samos and enjoy some more painting back at the guest house together. 


Later on, dinner can be enjoyed at one of the many restaurants on the waterfront, which are all within walking distance from where we are staying. 


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.
