Julian Merrow Smith: Plein Air Workshop in Provenceby julian |
This year’s painting workshops in Provence with Julian Merrow Smith will again be based in the two magnificent Provençal houses of the Domaine St.Jacques near Blauvac.
For ten days you will eat, sleep and breathe painting. Whether in the vineyards around the house, nearby hilltop villages, whether in the summer lavender or the poppy fields in spring, you will have the chance to truly experience the painter’s life in the south of France. Over sumptuous cuisine catered by our chef Angelique and her team, and accompanied by fine wines of the region, you will have the opportunity to enjoy locally sourced produce whilst sharing your painting passion with new friends. Working at your own pace and enjoying the pools, terraces and lounges at your leisure, this painting holiday offers the perfect balance between work and relaxation and you will return home refreshed, inspired and invigorated.
“Julian gives more of himself to a workshop than anyone I’ve had the privilege of studying under for the last twenty years of struggling as a painter”
“…thanks to you both for such a wonderful time spent painting, dining, walking and conversing during the first July workshop. It has been truly magnificent; an experience one appreciates all the more when, on returning and raving to family and friends, one realises just how jealous they are! “
“Julian provided incredibly useful suggestions to each of my paintings, things I simply hadn’t spotted, and I really felt it helped take them to the next level – and other people have told me the same. It was exactly what I needed”
“It was super-bon to spend time with you both, learn from Julian, a master, within such a wonderful, beautiful and supportive environment. Truly, a peak experience… I thank both of you for your kindness, friendship and generosity. Jet-lagged and trés content…”
“…and to express my gratitude to you both for your warmth and hospitality—far beyond what I expected”
