Plein Air Painting and Sketching in the Beautiful Lot Region

  • Date: 17/06/2023 12:00 - 24/06/2023 00:00



Inspired by the glorious landscape and medieval towns of the Lot region in South West France, Mark will demonstrate how to experiment in acrylics with colour, line and composition to further your painting.

Through daily demonstrations at different locations, he will show how aspects of drawing can inform and further a painting.

June is a great month to paint at Studio Préniac as there is an abundance of colour in every direction you look. If you have never tried ‘Plein air’ painting, or would like to develop it further, this fabulous week is for you.

This course is ideal for both beginners and more experienced painters alike.

Come and enjoy a fun-filled painting week with Mark at Studio Préniac.



Mark is an experienced practicing artist and tutor based in Shropshire, United Kingdom.

Sketching is at the heart of his work. It is integral to the development of a piece, sometimes forming part of the painting itself.

He continues to draw inspiration from the landscape and adores using colour while interpreting the light, contrast, weather and a love of the materials. 

Mark uses oil, acrylic and charcoal sometimes in combination.

He runs highly popular painting workshops and demonstrations as well as tutoring painting holidays in the UK, France and Italy.

His demonstrations and workshops to art clubs and societies throughout the UK are very popular.

Mark has developed his passion for both Landscapes and Seascapes while growing up on the West Wales coast. Moving to the rolling hills of Shropshire has enabled him to experiment with colour, light and line further.

Mark has numerous works in private collections and galleries in both England and Wales.
