Plein Air Oil Painting Workshop with Anne Kullaf at Perigord Retreats

Capture the essence of southern France as we paint the natural landscape and old world towns of the Dordogne and Lot regions. Color harmony is key to creating any successful painting, but working on location requires a keen understanding of color and value relationships, as well as in depth knowledge of color theory and the relationships of specific pigments on the palette.

This workshop is designed for oil painters who wish to learn how to achieve stunning, dramatic results with a simple palette of primary and earth colors. You’ll learn how to capture the subtle atmosphere and light of the south of France with instruction focused on form, values, proportion and perspective. We’ll explore the old world cities and sites the region has to offer, with market squares, churches and cobblestone streets. Each day will present a new opportunity to learn with demonstrations and individual instruction and critique. 

All materials, including plein air easels, will be included–eliminating the need to carry bulky supplies or deal with airport security! Access to a fully equipped art studio is available 24-hours a day, so in addition to the work done en plein air, you may continue to refine your paintings and practice your skills in the studio. All levels of experience welcome! The most important things to bring are an open mind, a positive attitude and an interest in learning. The workshop experience will be a positive, supportive environment that encourages experimentation while building confidence, skill and understanding.


All airport transfers, meals, wine and excursions included. Full workshop kit included for those enjoying the painting aspects of the trip.

All airfares, insurance and spending money excluded from above prices.
