Lynne revives memories of a ‘wonderful’ painting holiday

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

We are always delighted when our guests send us paintings celebrating their time with us. So our thanks today to Lynne Amor, who came on Jude Scott’s watercolour course last year.

Lynne writes: “I have had you all on my mind many, many times since our wonderful holiday with you at the Watermill last September. With fond thoughts and happy memories.”

Lynne’s painting above is of the castle and village of Verrucola, where we go to paint on Mondays before enjoying a traditional Italian lunch in a trattoria nestling in the walls. I particularly like the lady taking her sprightly dog for a walk over the bridge.

And here is our Thursday painting location, the Convento del Carmine, a nearby ancient monastery. The perspective of those arched cloisters is difficult to capture.

Oh, and talking of dogs, someone recently cajoled Lynne into painting their beloved Schnauzers. Here they are:

A couple of characters! Thank you again, Lynne, for sharing these delightful paintings with us.

We do hope you will be able to plan ahead for when we are through this difficult time and you are ready for a relaxing and inspiring break away from it all. Please come and join us.

*Please rest assured that if travel restrictions in your own country or in Italy mean that the course cannot run on these dates, or that appropriate flights are not available, we will postpone your course to later in the year or even until 2021. You can find out all about our coronavirus strategy by clicking here. Below you will find details of our rearranged inspiring painting courses.

** By the way, the Watermill is renowned for its inspiring teaching, its beautiful setting, its delicious food and wine, and its warm and welcoming hospitality. We are also Cool and Green, even in the summer: all the bedrooms and public rooms have air conditioning, powered by our hidden array of photovoltaic panels, harnessing the sun’s energy to makes us self-sufficient in electricity generation. So you will enjoy Tuscan sun and a cool watermill!
