What you'll do

We will be painting with watercolours in some of the most dramatic and beautiful locations in the Snowdonia National Park. Many of the locations require a bit of walking but nothing too strenuous.

I am a professional landscape watercolour artist with over 25 years of experience, painting in and around the beautiful scenic locations of both Snowdonia and the Lake District. I regularly hold workshops and teach at established art groups in North Wales. I love painting and walking in these amazing places and have produced many works over the years inspired by the ever changing light and atmosphere. Examples of my work can be seen on my website and at galleries in Llandudno and Grasmere.

Chris was very helpful with everyone in the group (all of us beginners) and provided all the required equipment, even camping chairs. He demonstrated each step of the process and then we would attempt to do the same. I felt like the session could have been longer to allow the paint to dry between the steps, so that we could have had a more finished painting to put up in our house as a reminder of a lovely holiday. I would recommend as a lovely relaxing way to be outdoors with beautiful views

Chris is a wonderful host with a great knowledge of the local area and his craft. I would highly recommend that you take the opportunity to go take in the beauty spots and have a relaxing coached watercolour session. Being a novice Chris' expertise really helped and at the end I produced a piece that didn't look like a dogs dinner, which shocked me.

Chris is a great teacher who takes you through step by step showing you how to paint a landscape painting. He took us to a beautiful viewing spot and set us up with chair and little table - he provides all the equipment and was very encouraging. A lovely peaceful afternoon.

This is a wonderful experience.. I had very minimal experience and left feeling really happy with my painting and a hunger to do more. It’s a relaxing way to spend a few hours. Chris is very friendly and knowledgeable. 5 out of 5 stars!

Chris was friendly and welcoming from the start. We quickly connected over a passion for art. Chris was knowledgable and skilled, taking is to a perfect location and teaching us so expertly, through the processes of painting with watercolour. We ended up with a painting to be proud of. A unique opportunity to develop new skills, meet great people and enjoy a few hours immersed in painting stunning scenery.

We had the best time , location was stunning, Chris supplied all that we needed.....Chris is a great teacher , very informative and guided us through the stages of our introduction to watercolor painting.
