WORKSHOP DETAILS

Painting the landscape en plein air can be a truly enjoyable experience, especially when you know how to simplify the complexity of our environment and how to deal with its changing conditions. In this workshop, we will learn how to observe, how to plan the painting and how to select the information needed to capture the essence of a place at a specific moment.

We will explore various techniques to begin and finish a painting efficiently. Along with some technical tricks, we will delve into the fundamental theory of landscape painting, including composition, light, color, space, and atmosphere.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

For your convenience, all essential materials for the workshop are provided. In addition, you'll enjoy several excursions to gorgeous local sites during the week, where the group will apply lessons from the studio "en plein-air". Immerse yourself in Pastel sketching, soaking in the region's radiant hues and vibrant atmosphere.

Refreshments are available throughout the workshop during the breaks, and delicious home-cooked Italian lunches and dinners provide the perfect setting for getting to know Samantha and your fellow participants. Whether you're just starting out or have years of artistic experience, this workshop is for you.
