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.

Portrait of Leaha http://www.craigdanielsart.com/2013/06/08/portrait-of-leaha/ Sat, 08 Jun 2013 22:45:57 +0000 http://www.craigdanielsart.com/?p=42 I recently attended a great workshop with Martinho Correia and Mike Sass. This is the result of almost a weeks labour. Probably would have been faster if people had quit buying donuts.
