Sweden


I have just returned from the beautiful Aquarelle Centre, Dalarna, Sweden after giving a very successful workshop. The centre and surroundings were perfect, situated in the middle of a pine forest and leading down to a crystal clear lake. Accommodation was comfortable and all food was delicious. A light and airy studio with lake views was the location of the workshop. My way of painting is, shall we say, a little different to traditional watercolour techniques and my workshops are challenging to begin with, however, I believe a challenge is important and the participants are always delighted with the progress made from day 1 to day 5 and I always feel so proud to have taught them - it never ceases to amaze me how I can help bring out the inner artist in my students! I thought I would share a few pictures with you from my time there. I will be returning to Dalarna in August 2015. For now, at the end of the month I am heading off to Norway again for some more workshop fun and then home for a workshop in Devon. See you soon! Ax
