with Karen Pearson

Holy Island watercolour

Sketch, paint and explore in Northumberland with art tutor Karen Pearson. Immerse yourself in capturing the peaceful strength of this coastal  landscape, punctuated with ancient ruins and imposing castles. 

We cross the causeway to Holy Island and settle down to painting wonderful Island views, Lindisfarne Priory home of St Cuthbert and Lindisfarne Castle, a small fortress dating from 1550 which overlooks the Island from its rocky outcrop. 

Our sketch books will fill with sweeping brush strokes, vast skies, watery reflections and colourful fishing boats.  There is the option to take a boat trip to the Farne Islands, a sanctuary for seabirds and seals – keep an eye out for dolphins.
