Some more charming Watermill watercolours from Robert Christopher

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

Many of our Watermill painting guests continue to enjoy the Watermill long after their week with us! They do so by painting pictures of the mill and its surroundings, based on photographs or sketches they made during their stay.

One such is Robert Christopher, who has been with us for a couple of painting courses and who, from time to time, sends us some of his charming watercolours. Two more have just arrived and we are delighted to share them with you. The one above is of the Porta di Sotto, the lower gate of the nearby walled mediaeval town of Fivizzano, where we go to paint and enjoy the market on Mondays. And below you can see a corner of the 19th century mill in the Watermill complex, with two of the old millstones, and the wooden hoppers above them into which the grain was poured.

Thank you very much again, Robert, for sharing those memories with us. Now that the coronavirus crisis is nearly over, why not give yourself a treat and come and see yourself the delights of the mill and the surrounding beautiful scenery of rural Tuscany? We have been working away to make sure that everything is ready for you and will be running the following painting courses later this year.

Come and join us and create some fond memories of 2020!

Below you will first find details of our remaining inspiring painting courses. 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 until 2021..

** 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!
