Bandouille - FRANCE PAINTING HOLIDAY  - 2013

A heartfelt thanks to Bix and Drew of  France Painting Holiday
for hosting my recent watercolour workshop in France held at their beautiful home Bandouille .  I hope the short video of photos taken during the week gives you an idea of the idllyic setting of Bandouille , trips to local villages and towns  and a glipse of  "work in progress" in the studio during the week  . A special thanks to all the wonderful  guests Melissa Giovanna and Cristina . I so enjoyed  painting with you all and Bix .

You can follow Melissa's posts on her holiday at Bandouille on her blog.

 DATES : 14/09/2014 - 20/09/2014

I am very happy to announce I have been invited back for next year as guest tutor

Oh Jane the whole video is a piece of artwork in itself - I watched it full screen and loved the French music with it. I could see both individuality in the paintings yet also very much your influence too. I bet the week flashed by though!
