Sunny Over Kirkhope Farm
The hottest weekend of the year so far saw us at the stunning Over Kirkhope Farm in the beautiful Scottish Borders for our May Paintbox Luxury Art Retreat.
The Friday starts off with a continental breakfast over looking the gorgeous Scottish Borders’ countryside then it was off to the studio. There was a lecture and slideshow about drawing and painting the landscape before the guests spent the rest of the morning outside drawing in the 25 degree heat! After a delightful lunch it was back to the studio for an afternoon of creating coloured sketches.
On Friday evening Paintbox Luxury Art Retreats opened the cinema! We showed guests a film about David Hockney called “A Bigger Picture” a lovely way to wind down after a busy day in the studio.
On Saturday, the day at the studio started with more painting outside, with the stunning weather it would be rude not to! However, after a huge thunder storm the guests moved back into the studio to work up finished paintings from the previous day and a final critique from tutor Jemma, ended their art workshop.
After another wonderful dinner produced by Lynsey guests had a relaxing evening socialising and relaxing in the welcoming lounge.
Sunday morning saw one last breakfast before the guests had to head home. We loved our time providing our Luxury Art Retreat to some wonderful guests and the weather was an absolute bonus, we hope you enjoyed it as much as us and we can’t wait for the next one!
Our June Luxury Art Retreat is already fully booked and the September retreat only has a few spaces available. If you would like to book get in touch now to avoid disappointment!
