The marvellous views and scenic settings will inspire us with endless subjects. Painting 'en plein air' and enjoying the outdoor location embracing olive grooves, wines and the hills of Chianti will certainly be an unforgettable experience.
Sketching and drawing, composition and perspective, light and shadow - observing and capturing the Tuscan colours and light during different moments of the day, as well as studies of characteristic elements will be part of the program.

You will be inspired by the beatiful garden and surroundings with flowers, herbs, trees and branches with their foliage and fruits, pots with succulents and much more. Painting surrounded by the fragrance of the seasonal flowering such as roses, honeysuckle and iris, as well as herbs like mint, lavender, rosemary, is a pleasure for your senses but also a great way to practice and learn more about watercolour techniques and botany as the teacher is also a keen gardener.
