Holiday 2020 – France

If you’d like to join me for a week in July 2020 in the beautiful village of La Salle, south west France, please visit www.palettesdegascogne.com   I will have a painting schedule packed full of lovely loose watercolour tutorials to help you relax and enjoy this beautiful medium.  During the week, we will  head to some of the beautiful nearby towns and gardens, visiting a vibrant farmers market and be inspired by the local landscape which is at it’s magnificent best, with rolling fields of Sunflowers all around us. We will be winetasting in a nearby Chateau and taking part in the 14th July celebrations in the local village. On our final evening, we will be wining and dining ‘al fresco’ at ‘Chez Vous’, our lively local restaurant.
