This is what participants said about the Hidden Cove Workshop 2015

It was wonderful. I still can’t believe I was able to paint what I did. That has inspired me to try to go out and do a bit in the local parks once the tourists have vacated.

Teresa, thank you for a wonderful three-days in exposing us to the art of plein air painting. Your very well-run classes were of great assistance to both an inexperienced painter – like myself – and an experienced painter. I appreciated your explanations of the many concepts, like the choosing of the location, locating the scene on the canvass, blocking out the scene and the the use of colours – value and hue – warm and cool. You then set up a series of paintings that challenged our understanding and improved our abilities. I left with lots to work with. The combination of your enthusiasm and the wonderful location made the three-days a great experience. See you next year, Richard
