Port Isaac is a traditional fishing village set amidst rugged and magnificent scenery on Cornwall's North coast, with narrow winding streets lined with whitewashed cottages that head down to the harbour.  Truly inspirational: a rich variety of viewpoints and subject matter, an intoxicating mix of the natural and the man-made coastal landscape.

On this 5-day painting course, we will be spending the first day on location- drawing, making studies, sourcing ideas for paintings, before working for 4 days in our studio in Port Isaac Village Hall.  Our main focus will be Port Isaac, but we also visit nearby dramatic Trebarwith Strand with its surging tides and amazing rock formations.

In the studio, with a combination of group exercises, demonstrations and discussions, Ashley will help artists develop their paintings, finding their own personal interpretation of the Cornish coastal landscape.  Colour, mark-making, space and composition are all areas that will be explored and there will be plenty of time for one-to-one tuition. As part of his teaching, Ashley will discuss the work of other artists and also work on his own painting of Port Isaac, demonstrating many tips and techniques.  The course will end with an informal group critique, where the artists get the chance to discuss the paintings made during the week and receive invaluable feedback about their work.

This course is suitable for painters of all abilities who wish to enhance their creativity. Please note that a reasonable level of fitness is required as there is some steep walking in and around Port Isaac.
