It’s been a couple of weeks since the Lindisfarne outdoors landscape painting workshop and it was lovely to receive feedback today that Ros Duncan of the Peregrini Landscape Partnership collected from the participants…

Excellent tutor”    “Friendly helpful organiser”    “Wonderful location”      “Lots of tips”   “Fun!”  “ An artistic challenge”  “A nice break from the day to day”   “Good teaching”   “Happy”   “Friendly”   “Generous” “Inspiring” “Enjoyable”   “Productive”   “Stimulating”   “Motivating”   “Satisfying” ”Creative”   “Informative”

There was some feedback about the quality of paper provided being not so great, and the momentary confusion at the start of the day when we couldn’t find everyone in the car park! But those are very resolvable issues, so overall it’s been a great success.

It’s all thanks to Ros Duncan of the Peregrini Landscape Partnership, who came up with the idea of painting workshops a few months ago and has been one of the most positive, organised, fun and helpful people I’ve worked with in all my years in the arts!


Ros is also planning an exhibition of the paintings on Lindisfarne, so I look forward to that, as well as running more workshops in future (I’ll post any updates here).

In the meantime, plans for the Hebridean trip which starts on the 16th September are gathering pace, and I’ll soon post interviews of fellow collaborators – author Louise Palfreyman and cellist/compser Atzi Muramatsu. I can’t wait to start our journey!

Here’s one of the places we’ll be staying on Skye, in the amusingly named ‘luxury cowshed pods’ 🙂
