Introduction
This short break art holiday gives artists the ideal opportunity to explore Derwent's Inktense blocks on Canson's Moulin du Roy paper, (all provided) utilising Robert's expressive use of colour using this very different media on top quality watercolour paper. It's always amazing what we can be created in a relative short time on this great painting break!

Derwent Inktense is a very different media and a popular one amongst artists of different levels of ability too. Portable, lightweight, versatile and inspirational are just some of the atributes this brand new media is described as being. With 72 different colours in the entire range which have been professionally introduced recently to the market by The Lake District company from Keswick 'Derwent', Inktense blocks allow the artist to both draw and paint with them at the same time with techniques akin to pastel painting and water media techniques within the same painting.

 

Robert is a leading Associate Artist for Derwent, chosen for his creative and award winning art techniques usng select Derwent products which Include Inktense (amongst others) to create richly layered expressive paintings filled with colour, atmosphere and above all, a sence of place with an expressive edge. Working in the studion and outdoors (weather permitting) Robert will guide every student through each and every step using Derwent Inktense teaching you lots of creative skills with this exciting media to create your very own eye catching paintings.

'This try before you buy' short break provides artists with more than just an insight into the world of Derwent Inktense creativity but allows you to use 24 of Derwents exciting Inktense colours and pencils (provided by Higham Hall for use during your workshop only) to get a real feel for the media with an expert artist who uses them regularly, without the initial capital outlay for the media when working solo and expensive trial and error you'd have to go through if working on your own. 

(Sorry, not suitable for pure beginners as the art techniques taught may be too advanced).
