We are situated in a quiet location.
We have a 1-bed, luxury, self-contained, self-catering hideaway suitable for you and a friend or partner to relax in after an inspiring day.

I can give guidance on how to draw inspiration from a range of varied locations in and around Battle's ancient woodlands and forests as well as along the many coves and areas of outstanding natural beauty from Burling Gap to Dungeness.
After our adventures out and about you will return in the afternoon, back to the studio with photos sketches, and video. We will then use these to develop techniques that will result in one or more paintings and sketches you can take home or have framed or printed and sent to you after you leave...
