Come paint with me in France!

Painting on location and being  in the moment is the best way to paint! I have visited Perigord Retreats twice, and each time, I fall in love with the place a little bit more. The ancient beaux villages, the natural beauty of the landscape and the hospitality of our hosts at PR make it an experience you will never forget. Each day we will visit a new location, exploring the landscape in watercolor and gouache. I will teach you how to connect with your subject in a way that goes beyond the technical aspects of plein air painting. There will be multiple demonstrations everyday, with assistance and encouragement as you work on your sketches. You will return home with a sketchbook filled with memories and ideas for studio paintings inspired by your time at Perigord Retreats.
