About the course

Join Catherine Watters for one week of drawing and painting the incredibly diverse flora of Clos Mirabel, using watercolours to capture the colours and textures of the plants. Catherine will teach you how to carefully observe, measure and draw your subject focusing on form, light and texture. After composing your illustration, we will discuss the properties of watercolours and work on colour mixing.

Clos Mirabel is a beautiful fifteen-acre estate between coast and mountains. Its 18th Century Manor Hose is set in private parkland amidst the gentle hills of Jurançon with magnificent, uninterrupted views out over vineyards to the entire chain of the Pyrénées Atlantiques. A haven of peace, ever changing light and tranquility, it is the perfect location for painting.
