Painting Workshops or Art Retreats?
In this time of the pandemic, I wish that I could be at the Frankfurt airport and have a few minutes to write this post. I would say that in a few days, we would be a group of 10 artists from both hemispheres, painting the landscape in the middle of Tuscany in Italy. Ah! Studio Italia!
For the next 10 days I would be repeating the following:
- Be holistic; from the very first moment you start to paint.
- What is in front is just a reference! No one in the USA will know if the cypress was exactly “there”!
- Just Let Go! The fleeting light is hounding you!
- Make peace with what you see in front of you. Surrender!
In conclusion, at Walk the Arts we aim to facilitate our art makers to chart new territories. Our painting classes and art tours are meant to offer an environment that fosters creativity.
