Louise, Freyja and I have just returned from my latest painting holiday organised by Big Sky Art Courses, staying at the stunning White House.
Even though this is the second time I have tutored here, the approach to the accommodation through rolling farm countryside still takes your breath away.
The White House has been restored from dereliction and is the most beautiful, luxurious place to stay. It is situated on the Sussex Farm estate and the view from the house towards the stables greets you each morning from the breakfast room. It`s a working farm and there are lots of fascinating subjects to paint close by.
The weather was mixed and we managed a day painting plein air acrylics at Brancaster Staithe ( a real favourite location of mine) and a day capturing subjects around the White House. The rest of the holiday was spent in the warm, well appointed Barn Studio.
As I mentioned the accommodation in the White House is amazing, take a look at their website. Breakfast was super with plenty of choice each morning to set us up for the day ahead.
Canapés, followed by dinner, which again was delicious, outside caterers Burn Valley Catering certainly deserve a mention for the meals they produced each night.
I am delighted to be returning again next year September 5 to 10, 2021 and this time we will be painting Watercolour, Line & Wash. It`s a chance to join me, learn my unique rapid sketching techniques and use them to develop paintings in this very painterly part of North Norfolk.
Delightful location, luxurious accommodation, painting every day and the company of other artists…. its well worth booking.
