A week in Italy

How lucky was I? I got to spend a week in gorgeous Umbria, teaching watercolour to a group of motivated and lovely students. During the week we painted flowers, concentrating on the power of negative painting and fauna, looking at ink and wash, wet in wet, texturing techniques and so on.

We went out sketching special Umbrian cows, saw honey buzzards and wild boar and tried to hide from the incredibly hot sun.

It must have gone well, as Arte Umbria have kindly invited me back next year. So if you like the look of what we did, the date is 4-11 July 2018 (go to http://www.arteumbria.com).

And here’s the week in pictures (I’ll post some paintings shortly):
