Last October I spent a blissful week painting In and around Marsala, on the beautiful West coast of Sicily. I was hosted by a lovely couple, Yumi and Adriano. They have tastefully converted an old Sicilian winery into the most unusual and comfortable guest house, the Salinara Art Farm.
In April I am returning - this time to tutor a week of painting in this wonderful place and I'd love you to join me.
I will be taking my watercolours, but if you'd like to bring any other medium that's fine. We'll be visiting a whole range of exciting locations, from the medieval hilltop town of Erice to the mysterious island of Mozia..... from windmills and salt pans to quirky fishing boats in the port..... deserted forts, wild countryside and the charming town itself, Marsala has it all.
During my week at Salinara, all I actually paid for was an ice cream from an irrestistable gelateria in Marsala!
As my regular students know, painting sessions are fun and relaxed, and tailored to individual needs. You'll work hard and learn lots of course, but there will be plenty of time to relax too.
On this holiday I'd rather like to encourage everyone to include people in their paintings, so we will have a model (my daughter Tamsin) on hand to sit still for us. At the Farm, I'll show you easy ways to paint and sketch figures so that they look 'real' without adding too much detail.
See the brochure below for full details on booking.
If you would like to join us from anywhere else please enquire, and we will help you work out the best way to get to Salinara.
