October 13th-20th painting in acrylic and watercolours.
We would like to welcome the painter and art tutor Paul Alcock to our team at Arts Holiday Italy. We are really looking forward to working with him on our latest autumn painting week in Anghari. Paul often paints his local environment and takes trips further afield to gain inspiration for his work; wherever possible Paul enjoys working directly from his surroundings. Light, people and atmosphere all play an important role for Paul when choosing what to paint. Paul is great at sharing his ideas and developing confidence and understanding when tutoring en plein air as well as in the studio.
In 2017 Paul won a judges favourite award at Paint Out Norwich and in the past has won the prize for best work in show at the Essex Open Exhibition. He was also one of twenty artists chosen to paint live during the Queens Diamond Jubilee River Pageant.
Paul uses a range of different techniques when teaching and depending on the circumstances these can include painting demonstrations, paint alongs, one to one teaching, and group reviews. Paul has a relaxed style of teaching and he is keen to support his students to get the most out of their holiday experience.
Paul is an enthusiastic oil painter and sketching also plays an important role in the development of his work. Based in Southend-on-Sea, England, he exhibits his work through local Essex galleries and the Leigh Art Trail.
