Plein Air Painting at Urchfont Manor

I'm doing a Plein Air teaching day on Saturday 14th April  at Urchfont Manor, in Wiltshire.

 Some experience with oils is helpful but not essential. Starting with a short introduction and discussion on methods, the idea is to work outside in the garden, painting en plein air, where spontaneity often produces surprising and rewarding results.  Hopefully the weather will be kind.

 Emphasis will be on working quickly to produce several pieces.  A short equipment list will be available to applicants, but bring any of your own equipment as well.

  Limited places left (last time I checked) so  book soon so not to be disappointed. If they are fully booked you can contact me via my website as I'll be organizing more painting days in the summer .


  1. Good Morning Andrew!... Wish I were closer and I would be very happy to join you! Your garden studies shown here... are fresh and evocative of plein air influences and stimulus! Top drawer!

    Good luck with your demo and day out painting on such a lovely site!

    Good Painting... and Happy Easter to you!
    Warmest regards,

  2. Thanks Bruce
    well I know I would enjoy a paint-out in the forest/woodlands you reveal at the end of your brush. I'll be in touch if I ever get to Canada.. We've had some rain since actually, not much but it is a start.

    Best regards and good painting.
