Ways to the Sea, a personal view of the Welsh Coastline.
‘I spend a lot of time walking in West Wales, an area which inspires many of my seascapes. The sea is always so close, a constant presence and all my walks draw me towards the sea - a shaft of light, a silvery surface, a crash of a wave. I am led down a grassy lane, over a wooden stile, along a rocky cliff. I am constantly trying to capture the changing light on the surface of the sea and the buildings within the surrounding landscape. The mood is always shifting from calm to windswept and stormy. There is such a huge array of colours in the sea and sky. The shadows shorten and lengthen as the sun moves through the day and the same view can appear completely different depending on the light, time of day and the weather.’
'You tick all the boxes. The tuition is perfect - help when needed plus extra new tips. Start and finish times are perfect. The cottage is very comfortable, warm and a very high standard. Surrounding countryside is stunning!' - E P
‘We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you. Our only regret was it should have been longer! I learned so much in three days and felt I had made more progress that I had done in months.’ - J
'It was a most enjoyable experience. For me, the en plein air in the morning and workshop reinforcement and completion of painting, or starting something new in the afternoon was a fruitful and worthwhile experience. Anita is a very gifted teacher with good direction to take the student forward and then the skill to let the student fly and come away with a great sense of achievement' - Les
Excellent course and delightful surroundings' - L D
'I thoroughly enjoyed the Art Course tutored by Anita Woods. I was taught to paint with watercolours and was very pleased with the results. I would recommend this workshop to anyone of any ability.' - Sandra
