Come and paint en plein air in the warmth of the Tuscan sun in Cortona, one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Tuscany! Painting in the landscape requires a unique combination of left and right brain thinking. We have an emotional, intuitive response to a scene, yet we need technical control and accuracy to convey our concept to paper. This workshop will focus on how to identify, clarify and convey your initial emotional response, and bring it to completion without losing the immediacy and vibrancy of your vision.
