On Tuesdays, after they have enjoyed the sights and sounds of the weekly market in the mediaeval walled town of Fivizzano, and savoured a panino and home-made ice cream in the gelateria in the town’s main square, our painting guests often like to wander down to the Piazza Belvedere, and the terrace with lovely views down the Valley of the River Rosaro towards our village of Posara.

It’s quite a difficult subject to paint, but our guests go for it with gusto. The photograph at the top of this post is of Mary King, a guest on Maggie Renner Hellmann’s course, getting to work last Tuesday afternoon. And here’s Maggie’s demonstration picture in progress, already a colourful painting, even though it’s only half finished!

Maggie describes her painting week as a Courageous Color Workshop and we are looking forward to welcoming her back next year for not one, but two, weeks, capturing the wonderful scenery of Lunigiana surrounding the Watermill in colourful pictures. Her weeks will run from Saturday 12 September to Saturday 19 September 2020 and from Saturday 19 September to Saturday 26 September 2020. We would love you to join us.

You can find out more about Maggie and her courses in 2020 by clicking here. As I always say this time of year, now really is the time to book to be sure of your place, and to take advantage of our Early Bird Discount Offer: £75 (English pounds) per person off either of Maggie’s inspiring Courageous Color workshops. Come for one week if you like, or double the fun by booking two!
