Simon and Monica Roberts run holidays in the beautiful south of France specifically for painters and their non-painting partners, so while some guests are painting vineyards and ancient ports, others will be immersing themselves in the atmosphere of the area.The couple have lived and worked in Languedoc for the past seven years, since moving there from the UK. Simon, a professional artist and teacher, heads up the watercolour and drawing courses, while South African-born Monica leads the non-painting holidays, sharing her knowledge of the history of the region and love of local cuisine.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the summer issue of Leisure Painter. We've packed this issue with a variety of painting tutorials and demonstrations for landscapes, portraits, birds, nocturnes, harbour scenes, flowers and gardens. If you love painting detail in watercolour, look no further than Paul Hopkinson's portrait of a barn owl and Jarnie Godwin's beginners' guide to botanical painting. If you want to simplify the detail, look out for Paul Alcock's painting project of a busy harbour scene and Hazel Soan's watercolour portraits. From tips on work outdoors to how to paint successfully from photographs, there's something for all busy amateur painters in this month's issue. You'll find practical advice on how to use watercolour pencils and other drawing media, watercolour, acrylics and oils along with where to go and what to do throughout the summer. Enjoy your month of painting!
