Plein Air/Outdoor Painting Workshop
East Coast of Sicily, Italy
September 27 – October 4, 2019
Previous painting experience is not necessary. You can acquire skills as you paint! The lessons will include watercolor demonstrations, including principals and elements of making a painting. I like to focus on a ‘subject of the day’, weaving in the material. We will have an evaluation/critique to summarizer our efforts. This is a great learning tool for all levels! We can travel from 2 locations to see surrounding sights.
