I have just made one of those short Facebook slideshows about our painting tutor Mark Warner, who we are delighted to welcome back to the Watermill this year. Mark was with us a few years ago and made some wonderful paintings capturing the atmosphere of the Watermill and its surroundings of the unspoiled countryside of Tuscany. His picture above is of the River Rosaro, which runs beside the mill. You can see it and more of Mark’s work on the Facebook slideshow, by clicking here.

Mark has called his painting week Colourful Acrylics/Drawing/Pen & Wash and those are the mediums in which you will be working. Mark’s course will run from Saturday 11July to Saturday 18 July 2020.

Here is another colourful picture by Mark, of the Watermill buildings seen from the walled garden.

Mark Warner, from Shropshire in England, loves working outside – and he leads by example, creating a relaxed and encouraging environment for his students. He developed his passion for landscapes growing up in the West Wales and then moving onto the rolling hills of Shropshire enabled him to experiment further with colour, light and line. Mark says: “I adore using colour while interpreting the light, weather and a love for the materials. I work directly in the field (literally on many occasions!) and from sketches created outside as well as notes/photographs taken on location.”

Sketching is at the heart of Mark’s work: “This is important in the development of a piece and on many occasions, forming an integral part of the painting itself.”
