'Painting Over Lemons'

Siân's first Art Safari Tour, to the mountainside village of Mairena, in the wild Alpujarra region of Andalusia, was every bit as exciting as she had anticipated.  The scenery was indeed wonderful, and incredibly inspiring for everyone, let alone those who like to paint. Our accommodation at Las Chimeneas was absolutely lovely, and our hosts, David and Emma,and their staff, were exceptional.

Over the next week or so Siân  will be adding photos, sketches and notes to the Holidays and ArtBreaks page, and to her FB page...don't miss them!


Siân will be returning to Las Chimeneas in Mairena to lead another Art Safari in May next year! More details will follow.

For Art Societies

Both Rob and Siân enjoy giving demonstrations to art groups, showing how they paint by generously sharing tips and techniques.

Groups often follow up with a workshop, allowing members to try out the techniques for themselves, with Rob or Siân there to help.




"Rob and Siân started me on the path to producing art when I was a complete novice. They are great teachers with a wealth of knowledge and experience.They have patience in abundance and they are always willing to  help, providing encouragement without pressure. They have a good sense of humour, which sometimes is needed! They teach at all levels, and on any subject matter, from  realism to contemporary.  Even though I have progressed to exhibiting myself, they provide advice and guidance if needed. I still attend workshops, as they are so enjoyable.  I would recommend them to anyone interested in painting."
