During this two day course you will be shown how to use your sketchbook to record the landscape as well as paint a larger piece or several pieces using your choice of watercolour or acrylics.


Edinburgh is our inspiration. We are extremely lucky, there are beautiful places to paint in abundance! Selina will take you to some handpicked locations to inspire you. 

You will work outdoors as much as possible. Being amongst the landscape is the best inspiration of all and it is great fun to do so in a group. If there is a shower Selina has some great wet weather views up her sleeve, where you can draw or paint indoors.


Selina will teach you perspective, how to simplify the landscape and teach each of you to your individual needs.
