summer painting holiday France 2014
WATERCOLOUR PAINTING HOLIDAY FRANCE 2014

Our Summer Painting Holidays in France (2014) were SENSATIONAL.

What a setting, what weather! What fantastic students!! What great food! What Laughter! What FUN! What great watercolour teaching!



OUR DAYS - were spent in this magnificent huge chateau/gite. There is 22 hectares of land here - with our own
personal enormous lake!! Plus 2 smaller ones!

The local village (Verteillac) was hosting the local county fair and was impressively decorated with thousands
of miles of garlands in the air!

Of course, we couldn't miss the 'sunflower' field opportunity!!
