Autumn is such a beautiful time in the hills of Italy. Colours range from reds, rustic browns to yellows. The Italians who flock to the mountains during their summer break would be back in the main cities, leaving you with spacious beauty to paint and explore at will.
Ev Hales will teach the skills of watercolour painting techniques to beginners or advanced painters. Ev will offer instructions and give regular feedback on your progress in this two week intensive workshop.
She will show new ways to interpret the magic you are seeing when travelling.The Italian scenery provides a stimulating background, while you paint ‘plien air’.
Ev is keen to explore and this unique country with her students. She will know the best vantage points to paint, while she guides your skill to a new level.
“Watecolour is the perfect medium to travel with and this will be how I interpret this journey to Italy” – Ev Hales.
And for the non-painters
While Ev is tutoring, Janette Garbuio will be chaperoning the cultural enthusiasts. There is never a dull moment as there is always new areas to explore, historical stories to read and hear. Janette is fluent in Italian and enjoys showing the beauty of the majestic mountainous regions and to communicate with the locals.
