Learn speed sketching skills in beautiful surroundings

No prior knowledge is needed for my relaxed and friendly workshops, and I provide all the tools and equipment you will need. You will create a number of sketches out on location before adding watercolour or charcoal in a relaxed atmosphere, adding detail and discussing your pieces over refreshments before leaving with a truly unique piece you created yourself.
