Holiday pictures from famous artists – your turn next!

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.On these cold, wet days (in the northern hemisphere at least) it’s pleasant to turn our thoughts to summer holidays. So we thought we would share some summer holiday pictures made by famous artists to warm you up and make you think of sunshine and warm leisurely days.

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.Above is a painting by Berthe Morisot, perhaps the most famous of female French Impressionists, of her husband Eugene Manet, on holiday in the Isle of Wight in 1875. Berthe is a great heroine of mine: not only do I like the look of her paintings, but I like the look of her. To the left is a portrait made by her brother-in-law Édouard Manet. Don’t you just love the twinkle in those dark eyes?

And here’s a holiday picture made in 1875, too, by Édouard Manet himself, called Blue Venice.The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.

And finally, a seaside picture made by another hero of mine, Henri Matisse, painted in 1925 and called Roses at the Window., if you came one of our world-famous painting holidays at the Watermill.

Well, I hope that warmed your day — and it gives me the opportunity to suggest that you, too, could be painting some wonderful holiday pictures, if you came one of our world-famous painting holidays at the Watermill.
