    Another amazing oil painting retreat with Ben Winspear at King Valley, Victoria, Australia. Ben is an extremely experienced and generous teacher, sharing his extensive knowledge with traditional oil painting craft. The location is heaven on earth, food is wholesome and delicious, accommodation basic but clean, hence the bargain low cost retreat. Being surrounded with supportive and encouraging fellow artists is also a highlight of this retreat.

    The valley is beautiful, we painted all day long, the company was great (I arrived knowing no one), we were fed hearty plentiful meals and we received so much wisdom from Ben. Ben took us to all sorts of gorgeous painting spots- rivers, lakes, mountains, and cow filled fields . I am a beginner at oils and a beginner at plein-air but that didn’t matter- being surrounded by so many talented artists was wonderful and inspiring, and the general vibe was inclusivity and encouragement. The accomodation is basic and comfortable, and meals and discussions by the fireplace happened in the cosy camp hall.
    A great retreat, can’t wait to go again.
