Eban is a French-Vietnamese artist, specialising in watercolour with a unique style, uniting the crafts of ancient Asian custom with European Beaux-Arts tradition.
About this course:
Eban describes watercolour like writing with a brush, allowing us to express emotions that live within us in every instant. Eban’s vision of watercolour is close to a lyrical abstract/figurative gesture that gives priority to feelings, spontaneity and intuition.
During this painting week, Eban will guide you through a creative work path where the objective is to transcribe brief sensations that arise in the present moment. Emphasis is given to chance and unpredictable schemes, supported by a subtle balance of composition and of colour harmony.
Through a mixture of lightness and gently flowing instruction, Eban moves towards more personalised work which gives you an opportunity to experience the unfolding and deepening of your own creativity.
What you need to bring:
Your tutor will be in touch well before the course with a suggested list of materials.

As for clothing the days are usually warm in the summer time, but it can rain, sometimes for a day or two at a time. So, we recommend a lightweight waterproof coat and perhaps an umbrella to protect your work. The evenings might be a little cooler, so warm pullovers or tops are recommended. Walking shoes are also highly recommended.
