Courses with WhereverNext

Hosts and chefs Diana Hunt and Ian Dent (WhereverNext) have been successfully organising, hosting and cooking in extraordinary locations for more than seven years. They share a passion for cooking "though neither of us originally had a background in hospitality, but we have both been organisers and specialists in making things happen".  

The next course WhateverNext will be hosting at El Molino del Conde is Leona Brown's "Painting in Spain" fully catered painting holiday in October 2018 (details below). As well as hosting, Diana and Ian will be creating healthy and sumptuous Mediterranean meals with quality local fresh produce including fruits and vegetables grown just down the lane from El Molino del Conde. 

Painting in Spain with Leona Brown 4-13 October 2018

Leona Brown is a Canadian Artist and Instructor who has taught internationally in the USA, Mexico, Cuba, Greece, Italy, France and Spain. In the summer of 1998 she lived and painted in China.

Leona believes that all great art is created in the moment. Picasso said, “Today I live”, and so shall you. The point of an adventure is to “fill your cup”, to find new inspirations and textures of a different culture - to enjoy new company and to learn and to laugh.   Her positive, fearless approach inspires everyone to paint with endless possibilities.

Indulge in days of exploring innovative techniques while you learn to build beautiful surfaces! Experiment with gel mediums, gesso and transparent stains to produce exquisite texture and low relief, working foundations. Your expressive under-paintings will then be developed with glazing techniques and luminous layers to build personal symbols with negative shapes or simply appreciated on their own merit as refined finished pieces.

In this shared small group atmosphere, there is emphasis on individual attention and instruction and time aplenty for artists at all levels to expand their creative skills
