Have you ever dreamed of painting under the Tuscan Sun? Your dreams will come true on this artist’s retreat! We will stay at Casa Berti, a 17th century Italian Villa that’s been exquisitely renovated with today’s modern conveniences. Casa Berti is located in the beautiful Tuscan countryside above Lucca, Italy.

I will be demonstrating in the studio in oils, using the “alla prima” method (working wet into wet). We will also paint together on the beautiful grounds of Casa Berti. I’ll give you tips on how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings! I’ll teach you how to layer with opaque and transparent colors, and how to keep your paintings from getting “muddy”. We’ll use “artistic license” to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes, and beautiful lighting. We’ll discuss color mixing, composition, brush work, and more. Learn to see “impressionistically”, and explore the ability to suggest rather than render the subject.
