Painting in Italy…

I’m so excited to be running a course at the gorgeous Hotel Leone in the Le Marche region of Italy.

I am passionate about teaching a solid painterly technique, from compositional skills and tonal study through to colour mixing and brushwork. Much of my process is about mixing colours and tones accurately, with a freer, loose application of paint to achieve impressionistic light and movement. With a simple palette, in oils or acrylics as you prefer, we will follow this process from plein air study through to studio finish, simplifying the stunning scenery of the area to depict beautifully composed, atmospheric paintings; full of light.

See you there!
