Another outstanding video from watercolour tutor Sarah Yeoman

Painting by Sarah Yeoman, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany Italy.Our award-winning, sympathetic and inspirational watercolour tutor Sarah Yeoman AWS creates wonderfully soft and emotionally charged landscapes (among other stunning subjects.) Like the one above of the River Rosaro as it flows past the Watermill. This is Sarah working on it during one of her courses here:

You can see for yourself how Sarah creates such wonderful effects in an intriguing time-elapsed videos that speeds the process of creating a painting from a blank piece of paper to a finished masterpiece. The subject is painting wet into wet landscapes and here’s a ‘still’ from the video:

Even better than looking at a video, why not watch Sarah in person on one of her inspirational painting weeks at the Watermil? She’s here for not one, but two, sun-filled, fun-filled weeks next June. We’d love you to join us for either or both and learn some of the secrets of producing compelling, atmospheric watercolours. More detail and links below. Here are some of Sarah’s students on a previous course beside the river, watching and learning, before embarking on their own quests to capture our beautiful scenery on paper.

As well as being an award-winning artist, Sarah is also a very talented teacher, who brings out the best in her students, recognising their unique talents. One commented: “Many artists are successful in producing paintings, but not all are true teachers. Sarah has the ability to demonstrate confidently, withholding none of her ‘secrets’, to encourage students and gently give suggestions for improvement.”

Another said of one of Sarah’s previous painting courses at The Watermill: Our week’s tuition with Sarah was awe-inspiring. Her attitude to taking on a subject and her encouragement and enthusiasm made everyone improve their painting during the week.” Another guest added: “I had a fabulous time and enjoyed everything – the scenery, meeting new people, the lovely ambiance of the Watermill and of course, the painting and Sarah.”
