Have a gander at Tricia’s geese

Talking of geese, as we were a few days ago when reporting on the success of Mike Willdridge’s latest interactive online painting session, one of the participants, Tricia Kaye, sent us the picture above of a three-dimensional goose (or two) that she has been working on.

A talented lot, these friends of the Watermill! Thank you for sharing your geese with us, Tricia. Here’s another mini-gaggle.

You may recollect that Mike’s last subject was a gaggle of geese in front of an old barn. Here is his painting:

And, of course, the aim is also to inspire you to look ahead and book for the real thing: one of our world-renowned Watermill creative courses. We have every confidence that we will be up and running again very soon. We have just been talking to Laurence Marks, whose Screenwriting course with his partner Maurice Gran starts on 8 August, who tells us that they bought their air tickets and cannot wait to be with us again. Perhaps you’d like to join us and brush up your writing skills with the Masters. We also have an exciting series of painting courses, details of which are below. Throw off the coronavirus blues and reinvigorate your life! We are ready when you are: buildings renovated, walls painted, furniture restored, window boxes filled, courtyard full of plants: we just need your company to make it all perfect.

We do hope you will be able to plan ahead for when we are through this difficult time and you are ready for a relaxing and inspiring break away from it all. Please come and join us.

*Please rest assured that if travel restrictions in your own country or in Italy mean that the course cannot run on these dates, or that appropriate flights are not available, we will postpone your course to later in the year or even until 2021. You can find out all about our coronavirus strategy by clicking here. We’ll also be doing everything to keep you safe during your visit.
