"I have just had a wonderful watercolour week with Kevin. He spent time getting to know each of us and what we wanted from the week and then responded to our needs. His gentle humour, patient teaching and incredible personal skill level meant I made huge progress in a lovely atmosphere. He gave both individual coaching and also really useful demonstrations and structured teaching sessions. Kevin was so generous with his time and expertise and an excellent holiday companion too. Thank you Kevin for a great week."

"Angela, I just want to thank you for a fantastic painting holiday. I've always found painting en plein air difficult but with your encouragement, inspiration and wonderful patience, you have given me the confidence to tackle this aspect of painting head on.
Thank you for the best painting holiday.
"I wanted to thank you Sue personally for the time you spent patiently tutoring out
shreds of knowledge, with my limited creative ability over the last week.
Apart from that, I will cherish lovely memories, captured in sketches of course, of painting en plein air - who would have imagined!- and enjoying giggles and generous G&Ts, in the sunshine. You are a gem. "
