For us a day without creativity in whatever form it appears is a day without a smile. We love to paint.  We paint to live.

We inspire

Sharing our creativity we write, we demonstrate, we teach. Smile with us.

'Moorland Stream' by Rob Dudley . Watercolour 

'Autumnal Hyrdrangea' by Siân Dudley. Watercolour


Rob and Siân have both written watercolour tuition book this year, currently with the publishers. Publication dates will be announced when they are confirmed. Details of the books will follow. Keep checking back for an opportunity to pre-order.


Our tuition is designed for you to succeed.

We enjoy teaching. It genuinely gives us great pleasure when we help people to achieve more than they had thought themselves capable of, and to share in their delight. Whatever you perceive your standard of painting to be, we are confident that we can help you to get more from your watercolour painting. Whether you are a complete beginner, looking to improve your skills or re-discover your confidence we aim to give you the resources you need.

We hope you have a very creative 2017!

If you need some inspiration, have you considered...

  • A term of watercolour classes with us in Ivybridge or Kingsbridge. Classes can be a real incentive to try something new, or to find the courage to fulfil a longing to paint.
  • One of our art courses at Flatford Mill or Slapton Ley. A short art break can be very inspiring!
  • An art holiday? In 2017 Rob is leading an art holiday on Exmoor, and Siân is heading back to Mairena in Spain.
  • An art book? We have some excellent suggestions on our Books page.
  • Refreshing the artwork in your home? An original painting can be a beautiful addition to your home; have a look through our galleries. Or for a very personal piece of artwork consider commissioning a painting, giving you opportunity to suggest the subject matter, and decide on your budget. If you like this idea and would like to discuss it, please contact us.
