Paint with Pamela Kay

in Provence

Capture Cézanne’s Provence on a semi-instructional painting holiday

27 September – 5 October 2014




PAMELA KAY NEAC, RBA, RWS, ARWS is a versatile artist and wonderful teacher, whose work can regularly be seen in London at the Royal Academy, Mall Galleries and Bankside. She writes regularly for Leisure Painter magazine and has written two books Gouache: A Personal View and The Art of Pamela Kay, as well as a DVD called Aspects of Flower Painting in Oils. Pamela draws inspiration from the Dutch, French and Spanish Masters of the 17th and 18th centuries, and her work ranges from still life, flowers, interiors and gardens to watercolours done on her travels abroad.

Cézanne was born and lived in Aix en Provence and the first week will be spent painting at his family home, Jas de Bouffan, an early 19th century Provençal mansion with a grand avenue of plane trees and set in peaceful grounds, at his studio and in various locations where Cézanne liked to paint le Chateau Noir and La Montagne Sainte-Victoire. Aix is an elegant city with many splendid fountains, wide avenues and fine palaces. The hotel is a few minutes stroll from the famous Cours Mirabeau, the Quartier Mazarin, Musée Granet, where you can see some of Cézanne’s drawings and watercolours, Place de Verdun, Place des Précheurs and Saint-Sauveur Cathedral, where you will find much to inspire you.

The Luberon is a quiet rural haven of mellow-stoned hill villages, olive groves, cherry orchards and vineyards, less than hour away from Aix. The last few days will be spent in the charming village of Lourmarin, which has a weekly marché paysan. The hotel, a former mill, overlooks the chateau and village green.

You will be painting with Pamela Kay every day. She will provide some individual guidance as well as group demonstrations. She plans on doing some still life and interior painting, and to capture the beauty of humble everyday objects and their unassuming nature. This holiday is most suitable for confident beginners and intermediate students. Pamela will be working in watercolours and gouache. Students may choose to work in any medium.
