Joy came on a recent Chateaux painting Holidays in SW France, & painted this accomplished watercolour. She had these kind words to say about the experience:
Dear Adam
Thank you for one of the best painting hols ever. We really do appreciate your teaching, kindness and not least your boundless enthusiasm. Promise to do better next year. And of course life would not be so good without Sue’s patient and unobserved feats of organisation which make everything appear so effortlessly well run. Sue – I kept thinking about you and the Strine Gang descending; hope it went well. Anyway, a really big thank you from us and also to the rest of the team. We loved them all.

Paintings of Painters Painting : Drawings of Draughts-Persons Drawing

All levels welcome, from genius to absolute beginner.

I thought it might be fun to gather together a few of the images from ‘Le Musée Imaginaire’ (André Malraux). Images of paintings of painters painting or drawings of draughts-persons drawing. Painting holidays or painting workshops are great occasions to practice this subject.

Do you have an artwork of this type of subject? I’m going to create a static web page for these when I’ve done a ’round-up’. If you’d like to be included, why not send me a web-ready image (72 dpi – 500 pixels largest dimension) (to me at, and I’ll include it. Don’t forget to tell me your URL if you want a backlink. It could be fun to get all these images together. Pourquoi pas?

All levels welcome. Preferably your own work. Ongoing Project, no deadline. Please spread the word & pass on the invitation! Everyone welcome.
