Painting Tuition

Bettina's painting holidays are suitable for all - from absolute beginners to accomplished painters.

Groups are kept small so you can visibly advance within the week and draw from Bettina's wealth of experience, skills, and thought-provoking insights.

Bettina teaches in watercolour mainly, and in other media as required. The course focuses on landscape painting, but offers many other subjects as well, ranging from still-life and flowers to figures or personally chosen objects. The tuition is designed to help you make the most of your abilities, with personal attention and plenty of encouragement.

Discussing Technique

During the week you can learn about general painting techniques such as basic perspective, choice of colour, composition, shadows and many other tricks of the trade. And for the more advanced, aspects of 'negative painting', 'wet-in-wet' techniques and so on, are part of the week’s schedule. For complete beginners Bettina teaches a simple, easy to follow ‘step by step’ approach.

Bettina’s daily demonstrations (in, or outdoors) are tailored to the particular needs of the students and to help you get started. She emphasizes how to capture the excitement of the moment, when you first spot a subject, without letting technicalities bog you down too much.

Above all, Bettina’s courses aim to enhance the pleasure of painting whilst improving your skills.

Tuition is from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., so there is time for you to relax before dinner, explore the locality, or even continue painting!

Plans might vary a little according to the demands of the day.

In 2017/2018 Bettina is going to the following locations: in the UK there’s Devon and Scotland, in Italy there’s Cotto, Tuscany and Sicily of course, in Portugal there's the Algarve, and for the more adventurous there’s Morocco.
