The Scottish Highlands Call

I’ll be leading a plein air workshop in the Scottish Highlands during the week of October 8th - October 13th, 2017. We'll be painting and staying near Inveraray Castle, which was featured in an episode of "Downton Abbey." 
As for painting locations, in addition to the castle grounds and the impressive loch, locals we’re in touch with are ready to show us the best, easy hiking trails through ancient woods, over hills dotted with ruins, opening out on amazing views.
We will take inspiration from the rolling hills, mountains, lakes, valleys, and coasts of the Scottish Highlands, which have captivated artists for hundreds of years. High Romantics who’ve preceded us, such as Wordsworth, Keats, Byron, Mendelssohn, and J.W.M. Turner, will be our spirit guides. We’ll be headquartered at and around the Duke of Argyll's castle, near the picturesque small quaint town of Inveraray, perched beside Loch Fyne, the largest loch in the country.


The final day, reserved  for exploring, painting solo, or joining the planned sketching trip to Fingal's Cave, will also include stops at Oban and Islay, about three hours to the west.

The workshop fee of $1,650 includes accommodations in a beautiful waterfront cottage, four full days of painting instruction and an optional sketching trek, and daily tea at Castle Inveraray with the Duke and Duchess of Argyll.

This workshop is filling and will fill be full soon, so if you’re interested, shoot me an email and let me know right away.
