9 FOR THE ARTIST
Lundy Island Sketchbook Safari: Whether keen amateur or complete beginner, then an opportunity to – ahem – brush up on your technique is on the Lundy Island Sketchbook Safari with Trevor Waugh. Lots of time in the great outdoors (or en plein air if you want to sound like a real artist) is guaranteed, sketching the landscape and wildlife of this tiny, quiet island off the North Devon coast. The bird life is particularly prolific in the early summer, when you may even get the chance to paint puffins and their chicks. Trevor will demonstrate water colour techniques and tips for capturing animals and there will be both group and individual tuition. Accommodation is in a large house overlooking a wooded valley, with views out to sea. The trip runs for four nights from 14 June 2021. à wildlifeworldwide.com British Travel Journal top tip Snorkel at Gannet's Bay and you may be lucky enough to swim with seals.
