my first cruise on Artemis to
the Mediterranean in June 2006 and have now conducted painting courses
on twelve cruises – with Oriana
on the first leg of the world cruise from Southampton to San Francisco
via the Caribbean and the Panama Canal in January 2007, with Aurora to the Caribbean in November 2007, Aurora again in February 2008 for the second leg of the world tour
from San Francisco to Hong Kong via the South Sea Islands, New Zealand
and Australia and in June 2008 on Arcadia
to Norway and the Arctic Circle.
September 2008 I was aboard Aurora calling at ports in New
England and Canada, including New York . New England in the Fall is a
glorious prospect for an artist – those trees dripping in reds and
yellows and golds set against the white clapboard houses and churches.
year I did two cruises – in May on Azura, one of the biggest ships in
the P & O fleet and in September a cruise on the smallest ship,
Adonia, to Istanbul, Yalta and a number of Black Sea ports.
watercolour painting courses have been received enthusiastically by
passengers and a number are now booking cruises on which they know I am
art tutor. Here are a couple of quotes from passengers:
inspiring, very informative and helpful. A brilliant teacher and artist.
Certainly the best lessons; I’ve learn so much.’
– enjoyed every minute – well prepared lessons. Going to continue
painting after a 12 year gap. Given me the incentive to start again.’
