A wonderful week of teaching a group of funny, talented and eager to learn more, woman, have now come to an end. I really enjoyed the challenge. The lovely surroundings, restored houses, the freshly cooked Italian meals and lots of wine.....made this trip perfect.
Every morning, for two hours, the group sat through different lessons, before they went off to work on their own paintings.
A whole day in the town of Sulmona, and the marked, was as every other morning, started off by drawing in our journals.
Sulmona, Abruzzo, Italy
So many views to choose from, back in Gagliano Aterno.
Perspective, colours, view finding......
Lots of beautiful arches.
What better object than an orange, to learn from, when it comes to shape, colour and shading?
Work in progress.
You never run out of motives...
On the last night, a proper exhibition. Local visitors and local red wine. A perfect ending to a brilliant week.
