When we think about it, we realize that painting is pure magic – it is, after all, about creating illusions. We take a flat surface and turn it into apparent 3-D solidity. In ‘Painting the light’ we’ll discover how to create some of those wonderful illusions.  This is a perfect retreat to reflect the growing, atmospheric light of spring in all its freshness and loveliness. We’ll be using various exciting and flowing media to discover different practices.

  • Meditations mark out the day as we paint from an inner stillness
  • Fluid art, veil painting, using rollers and more
  • Fascinating and fun, absorbing tricks of the magician’s trade!
  • Relaxed, and could be messy: wear old clothes!


‘In nature, light creates the colour:  in painting, colour creates the light’
