Hi sleeping artist! This experience is not theoretical: it's about full immersion and practice! Its your artistic awakening! You will be surprised by the awakening of the sleeping artist within you! During our introductory meeting the basics of watercolor painting will be explained. I always bring along a bunch of finished paintings that clearly show my techniques. Composition, sketching and color mixing will be considered and practiced. The difference between the techniques of 'wet on dry' and 'wet on wet' is explained and demonstrated. How to use these techniques together will be discovered by participants. Everyone will receive a painting system consisting of high quality colours, brushes and portable, light-weight base. Unlimited high quality Italian watercolor paper is provided. We begin to understand composition through sketching. Walking in Ravello (Or, by arrangement, anywhere on the Amalfi Coast), we will choosing a location that inspires you to make your first painting: your very own masterpiece! Everyone will receive personal tuition adapted to enhance their natural abilities. Other paintings may be undertaken based on the earlier learning, experience and time. Winter is a great time for watercolor because it dries more slowly giving more time to 'work it'. Go on, give it a go! Ya never know till ya try!
I have been painting watercolors for 20 years. Much of that time has been on the Amalfi Coast where I am known as 'Leo il pittore', that is Leo the Painter! I have also painted in Rome, Florence, and Venice, Greece, Israel and Ireland. Many years of experience give me the ability and confidence to teach others. I have taught workshops through local hotels and privately. My technique is in evolution, building on a deeper understanding of the medium and striving for new expression. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and skills with you so that you too can find your unique expression.
Paper, paint, brushes etc I have developed a light portable watercolor board with paints, water and pallet all within easy…
There are many wonderful places to paint in Ravello and around the Amalfi Coast such as Atrani, Amalfi, Positano and Cetara. I am free to meet people anywhere on the Amalfi Coast and even in Naples for two or more people.
最多可有5位年满5周岁的参与者参加。家长也可携带2岁以下的儿童参加。 There is no age limit within family groups. In addition, there may be more than 4 people in such groups. I have special children's paint.
Just bring along your creative mind and a willingness to try something new!
Depending on the weather a sunhat is recommended.
