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

Food for the Artists Soul
Sian is delighted to be returning to Mairena in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains in May 2017!
It is a place to breathe deep and to feel reinvigorated, for both life and painting! The surroundings are spectacular, the accommodation at Las Chimeneas is delightful, and the mouth-watering food is simply amazing! When you read Spain 2017 you will get a sense Sian's enthusiasm for this place! Coupled with her enthusiasm for encouraging people to enjoy their painting and drawing, you will see why joining her on this Art Safari holiday is a very good idea!
LEARN WITH US
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.
BOOKS There are some new additions to our page of book reviews and suggestions, including some links to books on our favourite artists. And of course, at this time of year, not forgetting Rob's own title:
