Another memory of a wonderful painting week with Maggie

Painting by Maggie Renner Hellmann, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.This is a lovely quick acrylic demonstration painting by our wonderful tutor Maggie Renner Hellmann  a week or so ago during her ‘Courageous Color Workshop’ here a week or so ago. This is of the view from the ancient village of Monte dei Bianchi, where we go to paint on Fridays.

We had a great week with Maggie. Here are some comments from our guests: “Thank you for giving me one of the best vacations I had. I really look forward to coming back.” 

 “Thank you for everything…an art workshop in a place like the Watermill can’t get better than that.   Only the best!” 

“I had a wonderful week at the Watermill. I just had a fabulous time and met some wonderful people.”

The bees, the butterflies, the wine demijohns – everyday pictures at the Watermill

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, yoga, holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.My daughter Lara Breckon has recently acquired a posh new camera and is using it to capture life at the Watermill. Here are a few images of some of the wildlife that abounds in this unspoilt corner of rural Tuscany – a reminder of one of humankind’s most important endeavours, wine-making!

We grow the artichokes (above) not for eating, but rather to enjoy their magnificent mauve/purple flowers. The bees love them, too. And here’s another regular visitor to the Watermill walled garden, the graceful swallowtail butterfly.

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, yoga, holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.

The magnificent ‘creatures’ below are damigiane, demijohns, nestling under the orange floral trumpets of our bignonia. These elegant vessels were used in wine-making and storage, but have now fallen into disuse and many people in the area are throwing them out in favour or stainless-steel vats. O tempora! Or mores! Our gardener Flavio Terenzoni collects them from the wayside and we arrange them in the courtyard as fiendish drawing subjects for our artist guests.

An artist’s studio – come and join the artist and paint with him in Tuscany

Painting by Mark Warner, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.Here’s a fine photograph of Watermill tutor Mark Warner’s studio, with one of his vibrant paintings in the foreground. We are looking forward to welcoming Mark as a tutor for an inspiring week-long course next month.

We still have a couple of places left on Mark’s course, so why not join us and meet the man himself — and paint with him in the glorious Tuscan countryside surrounding the mill.  Ten people are already signed up, so we have room for two more. We’d love to welcome you here for Mark’s inspiring course and there are more details below.

Mark loves sketching and painting outdoors, even in the damp atmosphere of Wales, near where he lives, and where he is often out on location. (It’s a bit dryer and brighter in Lunigiana, the beautiful area of Tuscany that surrounds the Watermill.)

Here are some pictures of one of Mark’s recent expeditions, first to the dramatic castle of Dinas Bran. Mark says: “This is one of the most beautifully situated castles in Wales – and that’s saying something. Set high on a hill above Llangollen, Dinas Bran, or Crow Castle, as it is popularly known, is inextricably linked to the legends of King Arthur. The castle was mentioned in the Arthurian romance Perlesvaus as a possible hiding place of the Holy Grail, and home of Bran (Bron), the Fisher King, brother-in-law of Joseph of Arimathea.”

Mark also sent us a recent Seascape, looking out to sea from the town of Borth on the coast in Mid-Wales:

Painting by Mark Warner, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.

Mark Warner is a specialist in acrylics/watercolours incorporating conte/pastel and his painting course here will run from Saturday 22 July to Saturday 29 July 2017.

Mark lives in Shropshire in England and is not only a respected artist but also a highly professional tutor with many years of teaching experience. Mark is passionate about working outside, tutoring numerous day and residential plein air holidays. His sessions are very popular — and he leads by example, creating a relaxed and encouraging environment.  He says “I adore using colour while interpreting the light, weather and a love for the materials. I work directly in the field (literally on many occasions!) from sketches created outside as well as notes/photographs taken on location.”

Sketching is at the heart of Mark’s work: “This is important in the development of a piece and on many occasions, forming an integral part of the painting itself.” Mark works on coloured grounds, incorporating aspects of mark-making and directional brushstrokes within the work. He says: “I continue to draw inspiration from the landscape, although subject matter can be broad and at times very different.” 

This is the sort of Tuscan view around the Watermill that will inspire him — and you!

Come and join Sue for a versatile painting week in rural Tuscany

Sue Ford, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.
We still have a few places left on Sue Ford’s lovely painting course at The Watermill and we’d would be delighted if you were able to join us here: the sun shines, the sky is as blue as only an Italian sky can be and a gentle breeze blows coolly down the valley of the river Rosaro beside the mill – and our talented and versatile painting tutor Sue Ford unlocks painting secrets for her some members of her painting group.

Sue will be back with us again this year for another inspiring week-long painting course in watercolours, pastels, collage and mixed media plus acrylic. She’ll be here from Saturday 15 July to Saturday 22 July 2017. More details below.

We have fond memories of Sue’s last visit. Here’s a quote from one of our guests: “I had a wonderful time. Everything was superb – the accommodation, the trips out and the food! Utterly wonderful. It was an experience that I will treasure. Sue Ford is an exceptional tutor with a lovely manner and treats all with respect and kindness.”

How’s this for an inspiring online offer!

Painting by Tim Wilmot, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.

Tim’s impression of the riverside by The Watermill

Our English watercolour tutor Tim Wilmot is not only a very talented artist, but also a first-class teacher – and not only with face-face face tuition, like that you’ll be enjoy on his week-long watercolour workshop at the Watermill, but also online.

In fact, Tim is world-famous for his online tuition over the net. And now as a bonus for bookers on his course here, from Saturday 7 October to Saturday 14 October 2017 he is offering a free 30-day support via email for all attendees. He says: “I’ll answer any questions, provide critiques on their paintings and so on.” 

There’s an offer you can’t refuse! We’ve still a couple of places left on Tim’s course and enjoy a 30-day ‘after sales’ service as well!

During our week-long painting course Tim this Autumn you’ll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the spectacular scenery of Lunigiana, the unspoilt part of Tuscany that surrounds the Watermill.

Painting by Tim Wilmot, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.

A vineyard and the Apuan Alps near the Watermill

We promise you river valleys and craggy mountains, vineyards and olive groves, convents and castles, hill-top villages and walled medieval towns. And with Tim as your guide, you’ll learn now to loosen our style and capture the essence of the wonderful scenery with your brush. More details of Tim’s watercolour week at the Watermill below.

While he’s dabbled with portraits and still lifes over the years, Tim is inexorably drawn to landscapes. He says: I’m an outdoor person rather than an indoor person. For many years I’ve taken a sketch book on my travels and I quickly scribble scenes in a shorthand sort of way. Then, returning home, I recreate those memories with paint and brush.” And you’ll be able to do that, too, in the Watermill studio, overlooking the river and the walled garden with the high Apennines beyond

Tim says: There are all sorts of reasons for coming on a painting holiday — it might be to improve your drawing skills, loosen up your style, learn how to incorporate figures in a landscape — and it’s my job to try to find what your personal objectives are and help you achieve them. Ohand have fun with like-minded people on the way.”

All that and 30-days free after-sales service! Come and join us!

Sandy’s watercolour inspires us to new restoration projects

Painting by Sandra Strohschein, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.Isn’t this an exciting watercolour by our lovely, talented and inspiring Watermill painting tutor Sandra Strohschein? It captures the essence of ‘Mill 2’, the 19th century mill in the Watermill complex.

As you know, we’ve just completed restoring the buildings of 17th Century watermill (Mill 1), creating in the process two lovely new bedrooms, the Ghirlandaio and the Uccello, each with sparkling new shower rooms and stunning views down the River Rosaro.

The 17th Century mill buildings gloriously restored

The 17th Century mill buildings gloriously restored

Now we are putting our thinking caps on and wondering what to create when we restore Mill 2. A mini-museum charting the history of the Mill? A comfy leisure space where people can relax and watch DVDs?  It’s fun thinking about it. And you can add your thoughts if you join us on a Watermill creative holiday.
