How often have you thought, wouldn’t it be fun to travel to another country and paint the landscape? Then you remember you are a studio painter and the whole idea of being outside is a bit daunting.
Here is the solution.
Sketches will be provided for different areas of Tuscany that you can use on location or if you want to you can sketch your own.
Half of the day will be on location and half will be in the studio.
Using unusual color will be the focus.
So come with me to Tuscany, visit an amazing countryside, and let us paint!
