Luxury botanical watercolour painting holidays at Trewidden, Cornwall

31 March – 4 April & 4 – 8 April 2017

Late availability of one remaining place 31 March – 4 April due to cancellation. Call 01326 340908 or e-mail evelyn@evelynbinns.com. for details and booking.

Evelyn is pleased to announce her tenth series of residential botanical watercolour painting holiday courses at Trewidden House & Gardens near Penzance in West Cornwall in Spring 2017. She runs these very popular courses during the very week when their many ‘champion’ magnolias, camellias and rhododendrons are usually at their height of flowering perfection – although you can, of course, paint anything you like! This is a wonderful chance to get away from it all and indulge yourself in three days’ uninterrupted painting and personal tuition in classic country house luxury and enjoying superb cordon bleu cuisine.

As with all Evelyn’s courses and workshops, class sizes are strictly limited to six painters so that she can guarantee in-depth one-to-one tuition for everyone. However, non-painting partners are also very welcome to accompany course members for a full-board accommodation-only supplement and enjoy the many sights, amenities and activities West Cornwall has to offer.

To register your details to receive information about future painting holiday courses and non-residential workshops, please call Evelyn on 01326 340908 or e-mail her at evelyn@evelynbinns.com.



 
 

Discover the secrets of successful plant and flower painting on a residential painting holiday or non-residential course with award-winning botanical artist, Evelyn Binns.

How can I improve my drawing? What do I use to get that depth of colour? How do you get that shine on the leaves? Whether you are just a beginner or have been painting some while, Evelyn’s courses and holidays offer exclusive opportunities to learn at first hand some of the skills, techniques and tips that have helped Evelyn win seven RHS Gold Medals and become one of the country’s most admired botanical watercolour artists.

Limited to a maximum of only six painters, informal workshop sessions in inspirational but comfortable and stylish surroundings in idyllic locations ensure everyone receives one-to-one tuition and guidance, but is free to practice and develop their art in the way they feel most comfortable.
