Painting breaks on the Isle of Wight
The Wyke Regis Art Studio is based at the home of local artist Paul Hewson. Located in rural Porchfield, halfway between Shalfleet and Cowes/Gurnard and close to beautiful Newtown Estuary. Paul runs weekend water colour painting breaks in his studio. You will be learning how to paint with step by step instruction. Not only will you develop a new skill, you will take home a painting of the local landscape to remind you of your visit. You will be quite surprised how differently you look at the landscape around you once you start to paint. You will suddenly realize how colourful nature is.
A walk round Newtown Creek is a must. It was once the capital of the Island. Now it is such a tranquil place to observe nature. Bird song, meadows of wild flowers and butterflies, huge skies and glistening water. An artists paradise.
