Summer guest Tamara is still enjoying her Watermill painting holiday!

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.

Tamara Zakon, who was with us for a painting holiday at the Watermill last June, continues to enjoy it, more than five months after she left. She shared with us this email she sent this week to her friend Antonia Hollingsworth, and other members of the group.

Tamara says: “Do you remember the outing on the 7th of June, when the two of us were sketching in this secluded spot in Monte dei Bianchi, seated somewhat precariously with our easels on the uneven terrain? That day I managed to create one painting en plein-air, and five months later, on Nov 18, I painted another version in Montreal (homework for my current ink and watercolour art course).

“Winter this year started six weeks earlier than usual in Montreal, and a sketch with glimpses of Tuscan sun, as well as the memories from our week at the Watermill in Posara, are such a wonderful antidote to the snowy and grey weather.”

When I asked Tamara for permission to use her pictures, she very kindly also send me a couple of others she made during her week with us. Here they are:
