Plein-Air Watercolor Painting Workshop with Linda Warner Constantino
I invite you to join my upcoming workshop at Spannocchia, an 1,100 acre working organic farm located in the heart of Tuscany. It was once a writers’ and artists’ retreat and is the perfect place for painting immersion. We will be spending our days painting at locations around this picturesque estate whose origin dates back to the 12th century and enjoying delicious, home-style Italian meals. The pace of life and the quintessentially Italian landscape are sure to make this painting workshop memorable.
Art is not only what I do, but also who I am. It is my calling. Color, shape, form, line, texture and pattern in nature offer endless inspiration. Drawing, painting, designing and sewing are all part of my creative processes.
Drawing is a means to explore, express and design. It is the source of my artistic style. My sketchbooks are my footprints.
Botanical watercolor painting is the art form I find is closest to drawing, yet it also allows for a great versatility rendering form and color.
Plein air watercolor is a way to experience a place and record nature that is far more enduring than taking a photo. It imprints a particular sense of place in my mind.
Quilting is a very tactile and visual creative experience. My quilts are a way of sharing my love of color and shape in a very abstract way.
I am a natural teacher. I love to learn how to create new things. I taught Illustration for 20 years at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. My students fed my enthusiasm for creativity. I like to think I did the same.
