Exmoor Valleys, Quaint Cottages & Harbour Scenes

Chris Forsey

12th - 16th September 2021


Holidays Listing

Paint with Chris Forsey in any water

based media in Exmoor and the

stunning North Devon Coast, where

you will sketch and paint cascading

rivers, moorland valleys, harbours and

coastal scenes.

There are many stunning locations

including the River Barle and valley,

the harbour town of Lynmouth which

was called 'Little Switzerland' by the

Victorians and the villages of Winsford,

Withypool and Malmsmead.

We will go out on location to sketch in

watercolour a couple of times and also

sketch around the hotel and down the

Barle Valley and will return to the

studio where we will explore the use

of different media and complete full

blown paintings.

Chris is a very experienced painter and

enthusiastic teacher, mostly

specialising in landscape subjects. He

has a distinctive style in his work, with

atmosphere, light and colour of great

importance. He uses demonstration

and one-to-one teaching approaches

to help the student understand how to

explore a free and expressive

approach in their own work using

combinations of water-based media.
