We will meet at 10 am and regardless of the time of year ,we will set out for the coast fully equipped with paper , pencils , paint and brushes all of which will be supplied for your use for the duration .Where we go depends on your agility .(I am like a mountain goat !)The coast is 5 minutes drive from Helston .
We will start by short walks at various locations of interest and along the way where I will draw your attention to colour ,tone and textures and also to the local wildlife and vegetation .
Learning to observe is an important skill and the weather could alter drastically and wonderfully .I will demonstrate some quick sketches using a variety of mark making which you will develop throughout the day.
The first colour sketch will be simple .Just sea and sky using watercolour or ink tense .This is an accumulative process and as the day progresses these little paintings will introduce you to more complex compositions and additional techniques culminating in a sea or landscape .I will be with you observing ,suggesting and guiding you through your journey :sometimes demonstrating ,always encouraging .Regardless of your current artistic status you will learn and experience a surge of creativity that will carry you into further exploration .I am confident that you will feel this a life enhancing day and assure you that it will also be great fun .
Other things to note

Denise and her painting experience were a complete delight! We had such a lovely day out with her. Denise shared with us not only her artistic talents but also her knowledge of wildlife and nature and her kind spirit. She took us for a walk along a glorious part of the coastline and we stopped along the way to paint. We were both complete beginners but Denise helped us produce pieces of work that we were proud of. We had so much fun! We got carried away painting, eating pasties from the National Trust Café and enjoying the beach and so overran a little but Denise went above and beyond, letting us finish our pieces with her help in her gorgeous garden with some home made elderflower. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone, Denise is so kind and full of such amazing energy, spending the day with her learning to paint in watercolours is something we will never forget. Thank you Denise ❤️

Had an incredible time painting and gaining inspiration on the Cornish coast with Denise (and her lovely dog Roxie)! We battled ferocious winds and very muddy trails, but the experience at the coast remained breathtaking and led to some truly great colors and effects. She then carefully instructed me in several techniques that left me truly surprised at the outcome! Will definitely be hanging my finished works in a prominent location at home. Thanks so much Denise!

We had such a great experience with Denise. She and her lovely dog Roxy brought us to a few gorgeous locations to teach us how to observe and paint watercolors. Denise is a wonderful teacher and made us feel comfortable and encouraged us to explore our creative side. She’s also incredibly knowledgeable about the area, fauna, and what to do in Cornwall. It was really a lot of fun and the perfect activity for our trip to Cornwall! We feel quite inspired and looking forward to getting our own watercolor supplies to continue what we’ve started in this beautiful place. We highly recommend this experience, don’t hesitate to book it!

We all had a fabulous time with Denise. She was thoughtful, knowledgeable and patient, and a big plus to the trip is the way the day is structured - we stopped in several beautiful locations to try out different painting techniques. Capturing those moments on paper was really special especially seeing the progress everyone made. We would love to do the experience again the next time we come to Cornwall and have already started thinking about buying some watercolour paints on our return to London. Definitely book this if you’re interested - you won’t regret it (even for those who think they can’t paint!).

This was a magical day and I can honestly say a family memory we will cherish. The locations were stunning, Denise was just lovely, very knowledgeable, extremely patient with the children and myself (the first time I’ve painted in 30 years!). Roxy the dog joined us and was beautifully behaved and made it even more fun. Denise tailored the day to us as our children are a little younger - we spent longer on the beach so they could also have a swim and search the rock pools. One of the most relaxing and enjoyable days I’ve ever had. Thankyou Denise! Highly recommended!!
