Review of Phil Hobbs' class from a participant at summer school 2017:

‘I have been to many art classes over the years and this has been one of the most helpful and informative. Although the class concentrated on watercolour, Phil gave instruction for those using different mediums. His approach was encouraging and it was extremely helpful to have a demonstration of how he tackled a complicated street scene, a collection of trees, the denseness of clouds etc. He was prepared to go through any individual artistic problems. I have always got to a certain point in a painting and found a stumbling block which I was unable to solve. Phil helped me to get over this problem. This course was beautifully organised, friendly and held in an attractive Georgian venue. In addition comfortable portable seats were provided for outdoor drawing and painting.’
