Walking and Sketching in the Broads National Park 9 - 13 October 2017
Paint n Canvas Holidays in the Northern Broads
Hall Farm Cottages
Hall Farm, Horning,
Norwich NR12 8NJ
Escape and be Inspired painting from Monday to Friday in the beautiful, peaceful Broads National Park. Staying on a bed and breakfast basis at Hall Farm Cottages with views across the water garden to the River Ant, nearby St Benet’s abbey and the River Bure.
For those who enjoy walking and wish to record their impressions of the landscape, using the skill of the quick sketch.
Designed to develop skills on location, increasing your confidence, enjoyment and absorption of enough detail to develop future projects or the sketch as a finished piece.
Hall Farm Cottages are situated in the beautiful Norfolk Broads by the River Ant, the terrain is reasonably flat, with easy walking, though often damp under foot. The intention is to walk approximately 6 leisurely miles each day, stopping at intervals to sketch and discuss the inspirations of the scenes around us.
Each day includes group and individual demonstrations, tuition and critiques with Linda.
Prior painting or drawing ability is not required, just an enthusiasm to explore different approaches to sketching in the media of you choice.
Small groups and her methods of teaching mean Linda can engage mixed ability groups.
She will encourage you to be inspired by your chosen subject, not to copy it.
Experienced painters are very welcome
Evening meals will be taken as a group at local hostelries close to Hall Farm
