Simon Roberts – Watercolour painting in the south of France.

“What could be better than spending a day of your holiday in dappled shade overlooking a mediaeval village nestled in amongst the vineyards of the Languedoc, brush in one hand, palette of Mediterranean colours in the other?!”

Welcome to our website Painting in France. On the following pages you’ll find lots of information about up-coming watercolour and drawing classes, on-line tutorials, galleries and our blog to keep you informed as to the latest events.

Come and join in our watercolour painting and drawing classes based in Pouzolles, 15 minutes from Pézenas and Béziers.

Throughout the year we run 1/2 and full day courses aimed at beginners and improvers, locals and holidaymakers alike.  Check the COURSES page for the further details.

I’m a graphic artist with a passion for watercolour painting who, after many years living and working in Munich, Vienna, Bristol and Bath, has now relocated with my wife Monica to the  warmer climes of the south of France – the Languedoc to be precise.

So, whether you’re living here or on holiday and you like the idea of a day of watercolour painting in the Languedoc or improving your drawing skills, simply get in touch. And, don’t forget, all materials are included so you won’t need to bring anything with you.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Simon, Monica…and Millie.
