Tentative Agenda 2014:
Thomas W. Schaller
8 – 14 June, Fine Art in Watercolour. Roses, Costa Brava. All levels. He has long been considered one of the foremost architectural artists in the world. His strengths as a teacher are to emphasize composition over technique or medium, and light and atmosphere over specific subject matter.

15 – 21 June, Atmospheric Watercolours, Roses, Costa Brava. Portrait, Figure, Landscape. Intermediate/advanced level. Studio work: live portrait and figure study, body structure and positions.

Chinese painter internationally famous for his ballet dancers, translator included. Painting excursions to Cadaqués and Castelló d’Empúries included.
2 – 8 September, Light and Atmosphere in Watercolor, Roses Bay. All levels. Janine is the director of The Art of Watercolor magazine. More than reproducing reality she prefers to take a subject, however ordinary, and try to paint what she feels about it as opposed to concentrating only it’s physical form. Great paintings do not require great subjects, they are the result of intelligent subject treatment. By the sea in a big studio with lovely sea views, combining studio work with plein air painting. Painting excursion to Cadaqués included.
9 – 16 September, Passionate Watercolours, Cape of Creus area. Intermediate/advanced level. Landscape, interiors. Two painting excursions to Cadaques and Besalú included.
