Bill Wheeler and Tim Uff from Tour Cornwall having been hosting Watercolour holidays in Cornwall for over 13 years. The combination of a local guide, minibus and well renowned Watercolur Artist works really well, with Tim using his local knowledge to find that perfect hidden spots to paint and Bills expert tuition, and years of experience.
The courses are based in the wonderful surroundings of the 3 star Porth Veor Manor Hotel, overlooking Porth Beach near Newquay, on the spectacular North coast of Cornwall. The hotel is known locally for great food and incorporates the Beaucliffes restaurant where you will be eating each evening.
The hotel is well situated, as we can reach any part of Cornwall in just over an hour in the minibus giving you plenty of time to paint one of the many stunning locations we have found around Cornwall. These include quaint Fishing Villages and Coves, spectacular Cornish Tin Mines, breathtaking Coastal views, gorgeous Cornish village scenes, and many miles of estuaries and rivers.
You will be out in the minibus, exploring and painting for 4 of the five days, with a day off in the middle to see the local area and paint in the studio. Bill will also be in the studio in the evenings to continue classes should you wish, and finish off the paintings from the day.
We have chosen late February and October as Cornwall can offer some stunning scenery in those months, with the early spring coastal flowers and the Autumn colours, there are also less tourists around to interrupt the painting and the weather is often fine due to the mild Cornish climate.
Everyone is welcome, whether you are beginner, intermediate or a professional artist, you can brush up on your skills, explore Cornwall, meet new friends and have a relaxing holiday.
