Sue Ford, our delightful and talented painting tutor from England, is returning to the Watermill this Summer. She says “This is one of my favourite venues. My last course here, in 2015 was a great success: a lovely group of people and Bill and Lois made us very welcome. The authentic local food and the accommodation were beautiful — and we enjoying fabulous days our paining on location.” Sue’s painting above of the beach at Monterosso in the Cinque Terre, one of the locations for our Wednesday excursion during our week-long creative courses. We like it so much it is hanging on the Watermill sitting room wall.
Sue’s inspiring week-long painting course is in watercolours, pastels, collage and mixed media plus acrylic will run from Saturday 15 July to Saturday 22 July. More details below. Sue says: “I just love creating pictures in any medium – and I love passing on what I’ve learned to other people and to help them release their creativity.”
Her students enjoyed their Watermill week with Sue, too: One said: “I had a wonderful time. Everything was superb – the accommodation, the trips out and the food! Utterly wonderful. It was an experience that I will treasure. Sue Ford is an exceptional tutor with a lovely manner and treats all with respect and kindness.”
Sue Ford was born in York, North Yorkshire and has experimented with almost every conceivable media in her career. She now a well recognised and admired professional artist and tutor. Here are some of her pupils at work in another of our great en plein air locations, an old monastery:
Sue says: “Each student will be guided carefully throughout the day, from initial demonstration to getting started, followed by patient, professional tuition. I aim to help my students to create paintings which will give them the confidence in their abilities and help them to develop their own artistic vision.”
