We are delighted to announce that our good friend and highly sympathetic and talented English watercolourist Trevor Lingard is returning to The Watermill this Autumn for another inspirational watercolour painting week. Trevor has been to the mill several times before and loves the area and our painting locations. That’s his watercolour, above, of the fountain in the village of Verrucola, where we go to paint on Monday’s during our week-long courses. And here’s another of his paintings, below, of the hilltop village of Monte dei Bianchi, where we paint on Fridays, before a gourmet lunch!Trevor Lingard has won international acclaim for his unique style, in which spontaneity, immediacy and suggestion rather than detail are hallmarks, as well as the presence of directional light.
During his week-long course Trevor will encourage students to adopt a loose approach to watercolours and will help to build up their confidence in using the medium. On location, in the beautiful landscapes surrounding the mill, and in the studio, he’ll demonstrate architectural, figurative, townscape and landscape compositions to completion. These will help students to gain knowledge of perspective, tone, balance, light direction and composition.
Some comments from previous guests: “Trevor’s paintings are always an inspiration to me and I loved spend lots of time painting and sketching with his expert help.” “Trevor was a wonderful tutor. Your organization as usual was superb, the food was delicious!” “The painting venues were perfect as was the food and accommodation as well as the company. Trevor spent lots of time with each of us giving kindly advice.”
