Brynaport is situated in one of the most majestic parts of the western coastal Highlands, and just across the water from the island of Skye. The atmospheric light and colour, together with the region's history and romance, make painting here both tranquil and inspiring.
Our day usually starts with a demonstration followed by painting around Brynaport or painting excursions.
Painting trips might be made to Applecross (over Bealach-na-Ba, the breathtaking, historic mountain pass) or to the fishing village of Shieldaig, with its lovely Caledonian pine-forested island.There is sometimes a boat trip to Kishorn island or inaccessible beaches which includes a barbecue lunch. We have only once been to the attractive yachting village of Plockton, where palm trees line the waterfront, but intend to visit again soon.
By late afternoon we return to the studio, so midges are not usually a problem, since we are not far from the sea and they only are out and about at dawn or dusk. Thankfully they are too small to fly during the main part of the day, where even the slightest of winds prevents them from accompanying us.
Gillian and Mark Pattinson at Brynaport are renowned for their generous hospitality, making sure each student is well looked after throughout the week. The course includes 5 days tuition, a delicious lunch individually boxed, afternoon tea and cake in the studio. The last night is one to remember with display of the week’s work in the studio, talks and refreshments.
This year, the course is going to be non-residential to allow for Covid19 restrictions. We can supply you with a list of recommended accommodation in the village so you can book beautiful self-catering cottages and B&B accommodation in Achintraid village directly.
