This course is aimed at people who have always wanted to learn how to paint, draw or make a piece of artwork. Using simple exercises which include - preparation of surfaces, colour identification, colour mixing, the use of different tools and materials, how to create different effects and composition, I aim to give you the confidence  to make something to be proud of. All within the beautiful alpine landscape of the Portes du Soleil.

There will be a maximum of 4 guests to give each person plenty of time for one to one tuition.

Chalet Mountain Thyme is a cosy traditional style wooden chalet, set within the beautiful Vallée de la Manche between the mountains of Ressachaux and Nyon. It's our family holiday home, where we gather for summer and winter holidays to ski, walk, mountain bike, swim or just relax in the wonderful fresh mountain air. The chalet backs on to open fields where cows, sheep and deer graze. You may even see the local family of wild boar.

Accomodation will be fully catered. Breakfast and Supper will be at the chalet. Picnic lunches will be provided.

I am a Master of Fine Art (Distinction). I have produced an eclectic range of work over many years, from botanical painting, land and seascapes, painting based on psychology and psychoanalytical theories to large installations and sculpture which explored colour and light.

Painting Holidays in the French Alps at Chalet Mountain Thyme Morzine. www.mountain-thyme.com

In May and June 2016, I am planning to run some painting holidays using my chalet in Morzine, Haute Savoie, France. The Alps have always been a great source of inspiration for me whether for photography, painting or sculpture. I would like to share my love of the Alps and art to give new artists the confidence to pick up a paintbrush or pencil to make art, their way.
