About the event

This workshop is hosted by Colin Steed, a watercolour artist and tutor based in Chelmsford Essex, 

The venue is Spains Hall Estate, a working farm and wildlife estate deep in the North Essex countryside, where deer, hares, owls and abundant wild birds make their home.

You will see how the beavers are transforming the landscape, creating a habitat for a myriad of other species. Learn about their habitat and then experience it for yourself, capturing once – in a lifetime watercolour painting of the beaver’s home.

You will first meet the Estate owner and hear the story behind the Beaver project. Your day is now set for a day of outdoor painting and teaching experience. This landscape painting course will look mainly at painting woodland and their reflection on the surface around the beaver area.

If you are looking to develop your watercolour landscape techniques then this is the course for you. Painting (Plein-air) outdoors on location is the best way to convey what you see onto paper with pencil and colour. You soak up the atmosphere which subconsciously is transferred to the brush. You will learn new ideas and techniques that you can take home with you to develop in your own time and style. Colin will give demonstrations and one to one tuition throughout the day.

Please bring your own art materials for the day.

Skill Level:

You need to be able to do basic watercolour as this workshop is to advance skills outdoors.


Adults only

Health and Safety:

Please wear suitable outdoor footwear as you may be walking over uneven surfaces (we will review the weather one week before the event and may make the decision to bring the workshop indoor, if this does happen then the price of the workshop will be adjusted accordingly)


Tea, coffee and soft drink are included as part of your workshop alongside homemade cakes.

Please let us know in the registration form if you have any dietary requirements so we can cater appropriately.

Lunch is also included, and we will email you a menu prior to the workshop so that you can preorder your lunch. Lunch will be made by one of the coffee shops here in Finchingfield.
