Looking for the Light in Watercolour
21 – 27 September
David is a really experienced teacher, full of wisdom and joy, which he transmits in his watercolours. Such a generous teacher, who encourages everybody to get the best out of themselves and comes up with innumerable tips and techniques collected in his large experience with watercolour throughout the years.http://davidtaylorartist.com/
I like him a lot as a painter, as an experienced tutor and as a person as well. Have you seen his TV program with a demo and interview? David Taylor – Colour In Your Life

dry brushstrokes– the finishing touches
drawing – how to draw and how much
figures– when they are important and how to paint them

be yourself – how to develop your own style with good techniques
Girona city, I’m in love with you!
Paint and relax
Girona is a beautiful town, both modern and medieval with a beautiful city centre. Everything is paintable, it’s easy to move around, and there are plenty of bars, caffés and corners where to get lost, as if you were miles away from a city, and yet you’re only 10 minutes walk from your hotel. The gardens behind the Cathedral and behind the city walls make you feel in the nature and as part of another time. We may not paint there as a group but you can go for walks after the class and paint there yourself or just relax. You can see a nice photo album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/9579732@N07/
We will be staying at Hotel Peninsular Hotel Peninsular *** Girona – Hotel Peninsular in the very centre of Girona, literally 5-min walk from Independence square that Alvaro and Joseph have painted many times and from the old Jewish quarter as well as the shopping centre with too many beautiful shops.
