A Summertime backdrop is on the way from Sandra

Another of our inspiring Watermill painting tutors, Sandra Strohschein, is already thinking of Summer, with a new painting-in progress. She says: “It will be a beautiful wooded waterfall scene and will serve as my summertime backdrop. I have to take down the winter canvas and need a spring/ summer replacement.”

Sandra’s early Summer backdrop will actually be the gardens of the Watermill and the wonderful mountain scenery around us: she’s our painter in residence for most of June!

Sandra says:  The Watermill is one of my favourite place to paint and the hospitality is out of this world. “I’ve made so many great friends there over the years and I am looking forward to meeting many of them again as well as making new friends during our painting weeks.

Sandra’s first  two weeks, May 26 to June 2 and June 2 to June 9, are fully booked (you can join a waiting list if these are the only dates you can make.) We have two or three places left for the week June 9 to June 16 and two or three for the week June 16 to June 23, so now is the time to book on one of these inspiring courses.

We had a wonderful course with Sandra last year and our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A couple of their comments: “Sandra was full of enthusiasm and talent and made every day a joy.  To have two chances most days to paint was utter heaven and in such wonderful surroundings. I didn’t paint a masterpiece but thoroughly enjoyed my week.  I hope to remember some of the tricks Sandy taught us and use them in the future.”

 “Many thanks to you both for a fabulous week. Your forethought, hard work and professionalism are very much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and nothing was at fault. You have created a gem. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to all your lovely people.”

Sandra Strohschein, from Michigan, USA, has achieved an extraordinary mastery of her medium, transparent watercolours. She works in a fast loose impressionistic style, but above all, she produces passionate, emotionally charged paintings, full of energy.

As for her teaching, people frequently tell her about how much fun they have on her workshops and how nobody ever wants them to end. Another painting guest on her course at the mill said: “Watching your demonstrations was such an education and your kind and patient individual help was invaluable.”
