About Us

Steve Taylor
I was born in Barrow in Furness and spent my teenage years escaping to the Lake District fells whenever I could! This passion continued with a career in the outdoors after studying to be a teacher. I enjoy travelling too and endeavour to bring something of the outdoor dynamic into my drawing and painting.

I also run a management training and development company from my home in the beautiful Eden Valley. http://taylormadesolutions.org/) and enjoy lecturing on organisational change and learning at Lancaster University

Our Approach

We offer courses that can be adapted for any ability.

A weekend may include a consideration of paper, brush and paint choice, mixing colours, applying washes, composition, tonal contrast or a focus on drawing skills. If you have a particular interest then please do enquire if we can help with it.

Our approach varies to accommodate the level of expertise that you bring. One thing we have realised is that there are no total beginners or complete experts in the field of watercolours. Everyone we have met has brought skills or techniques they just needed to rediscover.

We bring our coaching and educator experiences into our watercolour courses with the intention of helping any ability of participant find and hone the talent within. We happily work with those who are better painters than us because we have found that they usually come to us to help resolve a painting problem, such as a reticence to use darker tones. We endeavour to coach the skilled and experienced artist to find ways to overcome any painting barriers.
