Join internationally renowned artist Trevor Waugh and Wildlife Worldwide team member Sarah Malcolm on an exclusive retreat to the wildlife refuge of Lundy Island to paint coastal landscapes, puffins and the island's other treasures.
Trevor will teach techniques in watercolour, how to control the paint and sketch subjects in quick studies and tips for capturing behaviour in the field. Where possible we will paint ‘en plein air' in a series of workshops and demonstrations to improve your ability to draw and paint wildlife and landscapes whilst experiencing nature from a new perspective. June is the breeding season for 35 bird species which nest on the island, including the Atlantic puffin. This iconic bird will be our muse alongside other animals.
Over the course of our stay we will explore the island and never be short of subjects and inspiration for sketching and painting. The sensational coastal scenery will also be a feature of our tour as the island's dramatic and impressive landscape remains unspoiled and is laden with wildflowers at this time of year.
There are only a small number of accommodation options on the island and we will have exclusive use of Millcombe House, a large classical villa which looks down a wooded valley and out to sea. This impressive building will be our home for four nights, as well as an ideal space for demonstrations and workshops indoors. The small-group format means that you will receive both group and personalised tuition and are welcome at any experience level.
