Capertee Landscape Painting Retreat with Corinne Loxton

October 4 @ 12:30 pm - October 7 @ 2:30 pm

Develop confidence and technique with landscape painting. Connect with nature, relax and be rejuvenated.

Capertee is an ancient valley west of the Blue Mountains and 70 kilometres north of Lithgow. A dramatic mountain range surrounds the floodplain valley, affording wonderful views of the sandstone rockfaces and ridges.

The Capertee Painting Retreat is a four-day plein air (outdoor) painting retreat with Blue Mountains artist, Corinne Loxton, in which we will develop your skills and confidence in painting the landscape, in a relaxed and encouraging environment.

Take time out to enjoy new friendships, surroundings and the experience of disconnecting from everyday life. There will be time to rest, meditate, journal, bushwalk or just curl up with a great book.

As well as the tuition in painting, to develop your technique and assurance painting plein air, Corinne will introduce you to practices she uses to reliably connect with the creative flow. The retreat includes time for reflection, movement and restoration to ensure you feel re-energised and grounded after the four days.
