Frank Walters Watercolour Workshop

Mon, 25th March 2019 - Sat, 30th March 2019

Monet started painting at 40 years old. Van Gogh was in his 30s. It’s never too late to seize your dreams. It’s never too late to follow the path you wanted. It’s never too late to learn new skills.

Join our five-day luxury retreat in the wonderful Château Fengari and make the most of your talents. Turn your hobby into a career. Your dabbling into serious talent. Frank will work with you and make sure that you develop your work into the best it can be.

He will take a student, beginner, experienced or expert and help you to see new ways of doing things, new ways to achieve your end goal.

Sat outside in the French countryside with the sun warming your back, easel in front of you, paints set up in their tray; Prussian blue to capture the skies, yellow ochre for the stone work of the chateau, paint brush in hand.

About

The course incorporates painting in a studio to hone techniques and experiment, as well as sessions outside, studying the vibrant colours, mixing your washes to match the world around you.

There will also be visits to local vineyards where artists will be able to paint and enjoy sampling the vineyard’s best vintages.

Learn new skills

As well as improving your artistic skills, this course will give you the chance to have a real break from your day to day life.

To enjoy the birds singing in the trees, the frogs croaking by the pond. Time to be yourself, to express yourself. Time to relax in luxurious surroundings. To sleep in downy soft beds with crisp white bed linen. To sink your feet into plush carpet. Time to re-energize and re-invigorate whilst doing something productive for yourself. The best of both worlds. New skills and a new wind to your sails.

What's included

This Watercolour Workshop is held in cooperation with The Fengari Concept.

Franks course will be spread over 5 consecutive days and will include both Studio training and 'En Plein Air’ activity. All equipment will be supplied, but bring along your own equipment if you wish.

Five nights sharing a twin room accommodation including country breakfast, lunch and fine evening dining with local wines of distinction.

Price: €660 (plus TVA and tourist tax)

Frank Walters

Frank studied History of Art where his desire for painting in watercolour was forged. His job as Creative Director gave him a strong appreciation of visual excellence, which helped him to capture his own individual style by studying the classic watercolour techniques of JMW Turner, John Singer Sargent & Edward Wesson.

Today Frank has an appreciation of the art form in general with an understanding of the important best practice principles and nuances that make watercolour both fascinating and unique.

The result of his personal watercolour journey are now captured in his bespoke teaching programme, "Let it flow”.
