Painting the Colors, Textures, and Horizons of Italy
Time & Location
About the Event
Come with me on a fabulous painting and touring excursion in LaMarche, Italy. This area is a cultural, historic and creative wonderland. We will focus our artists’ eyes on the stunningly beautiful countryside and villages for inspiration. This is an abstract painting class, although students’ work could be semi-realistic. We’ll study in depth the contrast and tonality of the various textures and colors of the rich landscape and historic structures.We’ll work in acrylics, using fluid acrylics and textural mediums to create both visual and actual textures. We’ll study the horizon lines in our photos and start building our paintings there. We will explore our emotional response to the beauty of the area and paint from that perspective. A few writing exercises will help us to bring to the surface our responses to our travels. These will be moments that bring you wonder and inspiration that fills your soul.
