This course is part of Week One of the Dillington Summer School. Residents arrive for Tea on Sunday 5 August and depart after breakfast on Saturday 11 August. The course will run Monday to Friday.
This five day course is designed to challenge painters with some experience. The emphasis will be on watercolour, especially for preliminary work but finished studio pieces could be in any medium. Take time in the glorious surroundings of Dillington, to unwind and take a critical look at your own work. Be honest, are you stuck in a rut? Are you producing the same slightly tired and overworked paintings time and time again? Is there a better painter lurking within? Together we will examine the essential elements of a good painting to find the better painter that exists within us all.
In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
