Painting Holidays at Chateau de Beduer

‘The Painting Tutor’s Lunch Break’
Chris Sharland

Chris loves what he calls ‘informal painting’, which includes lampooning the teacher 😉

I’m back from a two week teaching stint of one my Chateau Painting Holidays, France.

BUT … I’m straight out again for a major solo exhibition in Sarlat! Busy times… I write in haste…. read more about the show in tomorrow’s post.

Everything went every well on the painting holidays. The students were great 🙂 They brought loads of enthusasism & real curiousity/desire to learn & to paint, lots of laughter & appreciation of the many great painting opportunities at Chateau de Beduer. The food was delicious, the wine select, the company fun; The weather was clement & not too hot.

The ‘teaching’ was ‘educative’ for me… you know, re-presenting a subject is akin to re-learning it. I’m still amazed by painting & drawing, have the feeling that I’ve only just scraped the surface of a very deep well. A good learning enviroment should include the teacher, I believe. My ‘how to paint’ book is very much eveloving out of my teaching practise as much as my painting practise.

All really magical & beautiful.

Here’s some landscape photos to enjoy 🙂

    Bonjour Adam,
    C’est un plaisir de s’arrêter et de lire votre blog. Quelle belles photos vous partagez avec nous. Merci. c’est toujours intéressant de voir d’autres points de vue, la manière dont les gens voient les choses avec leur propre sensibilité. Je vous souhaite beaucoup de succès pour votre expo solo à Sarlat. (solo à Sarlat : quel jeu de mots) :o)
