Painting Pastels in Beautiful Exmoor

Carol Kibble

12th - 16th August 2024


Holidays Listing

Join Carol on this exciting opportunity

to paint in pastels in the Barle Vally in

the heart of Exmoor National Park.

This 4 day course will be predominantly

studio based but as the hotel is

situated in Simonsbath looking down

the Barle valley with plenty of painting

potential around the hotel, we hope to

venture outside to gather reference

material. You may choose to go for a

walk, sketch or alternatively remain in

the studio to work from reference


We will probably get out for a couple of

half days into the Barle Valley

(weather permitting) or you can have

some 'down time' if you prefer.

Carol will demonstrate the various

stages of painting a subject using

pastels and will give plenty of one-to-

one tuition throughout. She is a highly

accomplished Artist in this medium,

producing images which are detailed

and realistic. She will show you how to

get the best out of your pastels using

many techniques including 'pastels

with water', sgraffito plus how to use

pan pastels. Carol is flexible in her

tuition and will adapt to the needs of

the group so that all will gain in

confidence and see progress with this
