Watercolour Painting Holiday Workshop May 2019

my painting holidays are all about the fun of painting in a supportive group environment and is suitable for all levels. Mostly, we'll be painting en plein air (a nice quiet locale in which to play with our paints!) and enjoying the fresh air. I know Lucca like the back of my hand and will take you to some of my favourites spots to paint!!
Every day we'll head out to one of my favourite spots and then to one of Lucca's great cafes for lunch, take a siesta and then out to sketch and paint later in the afternoon. When we're ready for dinner, Lucca's favourite dining spots will be waiting for us with a special menu just for us!

Tuition, meals, accommodation and excursions are all included!!

Probably just until the 14th.  My son and his family live in Prague and he will come over to Dublin to join me for awhile.  It is my first visit to Ireland also.  I am told that I'm 73% Irish by Ancestry.  Ive always know tho from family history on both sides that I'm very Irish.  And the part that isn't is Scotch and English.  I'm fascinated with the idea that so many of the Irish are plein air painters.  It sort of explains my passion for it.  I will go on to Prague with him after and stay till the end of the month.  I live in Florida.  I love the idea of you painting in Italy every year.  Ive not gotten south of Venice.
