Creating a colourful diary journal in the country that inspired Matisse and Monet


Discover a magnificent corner of the Dordogne creating a colourful diary journal.

This is a private tour for you and your friends.

We will observe and draw one these beautiful Dordogne landscapes/ villages and capture them in a diary journal.

As a professional, practising artist with a BA Honours degree I will be there to teach and guide you.

I will show you how to make your own diary journal that you can take with you on all your travels. A great way to record your observations and memories.

With my insights and skills I will be able to help you create something truly original.

All abilities welcome, these journals can be as simple or as intricate as you wish.

One of my last clients said that he had not drawn since being at school, he became totally enthralled and deteremined to carry on.

The price is for one day as a step on guide.

This can be for a small group or up to 6 people.

If you like I can hire a car but that will of course alter the cost.

Itinerary

I will meet you at a beautiful location near Sarlat or at your hotel in Sarlat. There are several choices which we can discuss.

We will start the day by doing some warm up drawing exercises just to get you at ease with drawing. Then learn some water colour techniques.

Time for a simple but delicious lunch.

In the afternoon you learn how to create a dairy journal and explore your creativity doing some water colour sketches.
