Nobody does awnings, canopies and umbrellas better than Lea Nixon, who will be back with us for another sun-filled, fun-filled, inspiring watercolour painting course next June. I love the yellow awning above. And here’s a red one:
Nine people are already booked in for Lea’s watercolour course at The Watermill, so we have room for only two or three more (There are links to details of Lea’ course below.) We’d love to welcome you here. And here’s an umbrella in The Watermill courtyard to whet you appetitite.
And a corner of the market in Fivizzano, where we go to paint during our watercolour week.
Here’s what one guest said about Lea’s course here last year: “The whole experience was amazing … I loved it.” And it’s not just a painting experience. As well as Lea’s skilled and sympathetic tuition, you’ll also enjoy the Italian lifestyle, especially the food. Another guest on Lea’s last course wrote: “I very much enjoyed my week at the Watermill. What you do is quite unique in that you get the gastronomy as well, visiting the various restaurants and your own excellent kitchen to experience the true taste of Tuscan food and wine. Furthermore, nothing is too much trouble and you have the personal attention of the owners to ensure that you have a good time.”
Lea Nixon is an exceptional watercolour painter from Wigan in the north-west of England for whom mood, character and atmosphere are particularly important. Lea specialises in watercolours, the magic of which excites him again and again. He has been a school teacher for the past 30 years in art and music, so creativity is in his blood – and he likes nothing more than to help others to achieve their artistic goals. Lea says: “There are many different styles and ways to paint a picture and your own personal style defines you as an artist. I like to spot the originality in my students and work with them to develop their skills. It is fantastic fun.”
