Guests will have ample opportunities to paint the beautiful Tuscan landscape in watercolor. This plain air tour is located in central Italy, in the heart of Tuscany, providing guests with stunning springtime views of the Italian landscape. Painting sessions will include on site painting at the Villa, as well as nearby excursions that provide an immersive experience with Renaissance era architecture and history. The painting sessions will be facilitated by Jill Williams, an American watercolorist based near Atlanta with over 20 years as a professional fine artist and workshop instructor. Landscape painting in watercolor is her specialty, and her experience and teaching style have helped numerous students achieve wonderful results with this medium. Guests can expect to observe helpful demonstrations and receive individualized instruction to achieve lush landscapes with visual impact. A supply list is available, and fully stocked supply kits are available for an extra fee for guests who do not wish to travel with supplies.
