A warm welcome back to inspirational Australian artist Terry Jarvis

Painting by Terry Jarvis, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany Italy.After three years of absence, we’re delighted to welcome back to the mill Australian artist Terry Jarvis for a week-long painting course in watercolours.*  It will run from Saturday 2 July to Saturday 9 July 2016. Terry is one of Australia’s leading watercolour artists and a great fan of the watermill and the surrounding area of Lunigiana. That’s Terry above, demonstrating under the Watermill’s rose pergola.

* Terry works in oils, pastels and acrylics, as well as watercolours, and is happy to teach in those media too.

Here’s an atmospheric watercolour of the Apuan Alps near the mill. Terry says: “The villages cling to the ridges of the mountains, frozen in time for centuries. You must get out the paints and lift a brush!

He now exhibits widely and is a popular tutor at workshops around the world. He loves drawing and helping his students to develop their drawing skills.Here’s what one guest on Terry’s previous course at the watermill had to say: “Terry Jarvis was superb with people, very positive and very relaxed. I’ve been on painting holidays before and learned nothing but Terry was great. When you got stuck he’d come along with a smile – and a brush – and bring your picture to life. He wasn’t afraid to criticise your work, but he had a really positive attitude, which helped you to improve.”

 Here’s Terry’s picture of Market Day in out nearby walled Medieval town of Fivizzano He says: “A captivating part of the week during a watermill painting holiday, when you meet the locals in the square by an incredible 16th Century Fountain. Just straight out of the movies! While I am there I love to buy a big bunch of flowers for the watermill.”
