The cost is $550 which will be for accommodation and tuition but not meals (meals and food supplies will be a combined effort).
The next workshop is on 14 -18 October (full),

The first workshop is over and everyone enjoyed the week at "Kogal", the weather was kind and there was a fine group of paintings done.
Places are available for September and October
Afternoon by Nulla Nulla Creek April 2013
”Congratulations on your workshop it was a pleasure to paint with a
group of people who had similar goals of improving their painting skills. I
thoroughly enjoyed every minute spent at your property at Nulla Nulla and the
day we spent painting plein-air down by the creek was special..
From a technical perspective it was good to watch you work and the
emphasis you placed on establishing the correct tones. I now understand i need
to be more considered in my approach to really looking and establishing the
tonal balance and to be far for patient in how I apply the paint , make a
considered mark move on and not rework.
Again thank you for a great week.”
