A retreat for anyone who likes painting in watercolour, and for anyone who loves to capture God`s wonderful creation using creative expression. Artist, Elizabeth Kincaid said, ‘Before you can paint, you need to understand drawing. Before you can draw you need to understand seeing’....

Wise words indeed.

Every day, our eyes are treated to the beauty of creation, but do we really look at what we see? Learning to look through artistic eyes takes us on a journey into the depths of light, texture, colour, shape and sound. We all have a unique way of seeing which becomes evident when the song of nature is revealed in the creativity born of our seeing.

Over the course of the retreat we are going to draw, mask, and glaze in watercolour, look at design, learn about light, shadow, and colour.

We will take each step slowly so that the seeing process is understood.

By the end of the retreat it is my desire that you will be more adept at ‘seeing the song of nature’ and will have produced work you will be surprised and joyful with.

Some materials are provided, but you will need to bring your own watercolour paints and brushes. Details will be provided nearer the time.

If you wish to stay longer, or start your stay earlier, please contact us about availability.
