Join Jenny Aitken for a wonderful day of en plein air painting around the lovely village of Willersey – just 5 mins from Broadway. Here you’ll have the opportunity to capture the idyllic Cotswold village which has honey-coloured stone buildings, beautiful village greens and a shimmering village pond. 

Award winning artist Jenny Aitken has spent most of her career studying contre-jour light. She is a regular writer for The Artist magazine, and in the process of writing a book on the subject. She loves to teach and share her methods and process, especially in the unpredictable and exciting world of plein air! Suitable for those who are familiar with basic oil painting skills and upwards.
