In May and in August 2017 I will host three 2 day workshops on the Isle of Islay / Scotland. Depending on ones preferences we will concentrate on sketching or on watercoloring. Ideal are quick sketches colourised in watercolor. Participation fee £110,-, a deposit of £50,- is payable when booking.

Transport from spot to spot will be provided.


Following dates are available: 20./21 May, 16./17. and 23./24 August.

(Additional dates can be arranged for a minimum of two participants.)


More workshops will follow in 2018, when there will also be rooms available.

Please check this space for information.




Islay offers plenty of subjects varying from landscape to villages and of course the whisky distilleries. Since the weather in Scotland intends to be kind of moody we perhaps might not be able work outside. In this case we will escape into one of the pubs, distilleries or my studio. All in all a nice opportunity to integrate a creative break in your trip to Scotland and discover places on Islay.





Of course it is up to each participant to compose his own equipment according to personal preferences. For some jsut a pencil and a pad will be enough, while others like to add some color to the sketch.

My recommendations are either a pencil, ball point pen or waterproof fineliner for sketches and outlines, as well as watercolours for adding some colors to accentuate the sketch.

For your comfort, do not forget sunglasses, a light foldable seat and adequate clothing.



One good pen/brush and a few high quality watercolours are way better than many cheap ones. They easily spoil the fun!
