A doubly warm welcome back for Watermill watercolour tutor Sandra Strohschein

A painting by Sandra Strohschein, a tutor on painting courses at The Watermill at Posara, Tuscany ItalyWe’re delighted to welcome back our delightful American watercolour tutor Sandra Strochshein, who is returning to The Watermill next year for not one, but two inspiring weeks. Her paintings above, of a rainy market day in the nearby walled town of Fivizzano, was made on location during a recent visit to The Watermill.

We had a wonderful week with Sandra earlier this year and our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A couple of their comments:

“Sandra was full of enthusiasm and talent and made every day a joy.  To have two chances most days to paint was utter heaven and in such wonderful surroundings. I didn’t paint a masterpiece but thoroughly enjoyed my week.  I hope to remember some of the tricks Sandy taught us and use them in the future.”

 “Many thanks to you both for a fabulous week. Your forethought, hard work and professionalism are very much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and nothing was at fault. You have created a gem. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to all your lovely people.”

Sandra will be back for two weeks: 26 May to 2 June and 2-9 June 2018, so why not join her for one, or even both of them? You’ll have to hurry, though, we already have five booking on her first course next year, and three on her second!

Sandra Strohschein head and shouldersSandra Strohschein from Michigan, USA, has achieved an extraordinary mastery of her medium, transparent watercolours. She works in a fast loose impressionistic style, but above all, she produces passionate, emotionally charged paintings, full of energy.

As for her teaching, people frequently tell her about how much fun they have on her workshops and how nobody ever wants them to end. Anohter painting guest on her course at the mill said: “Watching your demonstrations was such an education and your kind and patient individual help was invaluable.”  

Everything is included in the cost of your holiday at the watermill: tuition, accommodation (including all linen and towels), pre-dinner aperitifs, all meals and wines (including outings to charming local restaurants) and all local transportation (including transfers to Pisa airport and an excursion by train to Lucca or the Cinque Terre).
