Painting the Tuscan Garden in Watercolor with Linda Warner Constantino

Painting the Tuscan Garden in Watercolor

The Tuscan views and organic gardens surrounding Spannocchia make it the perfect place for the painting immersion workshop that I am offering. We will explore expressing the garden through the language of drawing and watercolor painting. After each day of painting, we will enjoy delicious, home-style Italian meals. You will find the pace of life in this quintessentially Italian landscape is sure to make your stay memorable.

I have found watercolor to be uniquely both a sketching and painting medium and because of this, basic drawing skills are requirement for this class, though it is open to all watercolor skill levels. Daily sessions will take place in the Museo studio with some also taking place in the surrounding gardens. There will be daily demonstrations focusing on both how to see color and form while also learning to master specific techniques that make watercolor so distinctive and expressive.

This year I have enhanced the workshop by offering a Spannocchia, one-day cooking class in the mid-week during the session. There will also be an Olive Oil tour during the week.

Fee includes: tuition, accommodations, 3 meals per day, group transportation to and from Florence Airport and Spannocchia, cooking class, olive oil tour. See website for all details.
