Based at the studio of local artist Elizabeth Gilbey immerse yourself in a 5-day residential oil painting course in the light and lush landscape around Kirkcudbright. The studio and accommodation are based in a recently converted Victorian stables which are comfortable and modern having retained many original features.
The course includes Plein Air painting, drawing and composition, working with light and dark values, how to give a picture depth and how to work with colour.
This relaxed art experience is a great way of escaping the stresses and strains of everyday life in the company of other artists. The vacation is suitable for all skill levels and non-painting partners are very welcome as the local area offers magnificent walking, outdoor sports and sightseeing opportunities.
