Watercolour painting and sketching 3 night away luxury break with Allie Pottinger BA hons

Last year I ran three successful, fun, watercolour painting short breaks to a gorgeous sport on a private estate on Anglesey. We paint and sketch at some pretty harbours very close by and stunning Lligwy beach is 5 minutes away. We have a huge living area and a spacious sheltered patio looking out to the sea. Its a breath of fresh air, all abilities are very welcome. All food and drink is included and we stay in beautiful accommodation, all ensuite with single occupancy. I have attached details of May and June breaks. In addition to last year’s agenda I am planning to go to the Hidden Gardens at Plas Cadnant near Menai Bridge, which is another delightful spot for ’plein air’ painting with a good coffee shop. The deposit is £150, please see the details attached – and have a peek at the accommodation on www.sageandsea.co.uk: The Mulberry and White rock house, do let me know soon if you’re interested.
Best wishes
