Painting is at times a never ending journey of hopefully improving while working and studying your craft. Attending workshops with talented instructors can greatly speed up the learning, and if you can also enjoy your surroundings all the better. With this in mind I went to stay at an old farmhouse in Tuscany for 8 days this September. It was a landscape painting workshop with some amazing food and wine. Taught by Marc Dalessio and taught and hosted by Daniela Astone. You can see her location at http://www.studiochianti.com. A few of the pieces I did there are below.
