Stephie Butlers portrait workshop 2015

Well what an amazing week that was!  Apart from watching Stephie doing her wonderful demos the weather was beyond belief!  By Tuesday we hit 42 degrees but working in the coolness of the Studio during some of the hottest times was lovely. But even there we needed some airing!

The above paintings are some of the demonstrations that Stephie did for the group and she also found time to do some large cat studies aswell to demonstrate that her techniques work well for wildlife too!

Inbetween time we popped out and visited a couple of places early in the morning when the air was nice and cool and it was comfortable to walk around.  A nice photo opportunity for everyone and then back for a well deserved lunch.

Thouars Market

We are looking forward to Keikos 2nds week with us later in August.

This wonderful painting of Thouars Market was gifted to us by Keiko and will look wonderful on our wall at Bandouille.

This was painted in our small village of Chiche and was chosen for the shadows and the way the road goes gently down the hill!   The students were givin the choice of where to paint and some chose this position and other chose other locations in the village.

All our guests had some wonderful results during their stay with us and here are some of the results
