Wow, that was a fun week. The painters from the UK were joined by italian painters on the day we went into the mountains to paint at Serramonacesca and we had an al fresco italian lunch by the stream.
Another day we did charcoal drawings at the 300 year old oil press in Pianella.
Spoltore village and it’s 360 degree view from the top of the castle was immortalised in aquarelles and the markets of Abruzzo were painted as a final project in oils.
Our cook, Stefano whipped up some delicious local dishes for us. The finale was a display of our work which was attended by over 100 local people, the local newspaper and the President of Spoltore.
was had by all.
My students did me proud and it was such a memorable week. Roll on next April/May!
