For November 2013 we have scheduled a very special oil painting course in Patagonia with inspirational English artist Davina Bosanquet.
With the luxurious San Huberto Lodge as our delightful home-from-home, we will enjoy instruction on portraiture, landscapes, and painting animals, magnificent views, spring flowers and an introduction to the hugely welcoming Argentinean culture. This all-inclusive exclusive offer is limited to just eight artists. Davina will introduce her oils technique to beginners, and if you are experienced and already have your own style she will be swapping notes and painting alongside you. Davina will be tutoring in oil as her preferred medium, however she is more then happy to accept artists who specialise in other materials such as watercolour and drawing materials as she has a wide knowledge in all mediums.
Classes will be taken in the morning, where Davina will help with choosing a composition, how to give an idea of form and distance and how to produce quick colourful sketches. Artists will be encouraged to work quickly on a small scale to produce finished paintings, and will then be free to either work on these ideas or paint whatever they like in the afternoons.
