Portraiture & Nude Studies
Enjoy the feeling of plein air painting in Tuscany with our experienced tutor Brigitte Guhle. We will mainly focus on portraiture and nude studies in different drawing techniques.
In the morning we will draw and sketch in front of our models and in the afternoon you will get to know different drawing and painting techniques. Sometimes we will do excursions to Certaldo, Boccaccio and San Gimignano, where we will do some portraits of locals. On your free day you can for instance travel to Florence, Siena or Pisa.
A typically Tuscan dinner will be served in the afternoon. You can also find typical specials like chicken hunters style with laurel oatcake, small courgette cakes and pasta with Salsicca and pumpkin. What you definitely should not miss is a glass of outstanding regional Chianti.
Target group: This course is meant to be for beginners as well as for advanced learners.
Where do we paint/sketch/draw? We will draw and sketch mainly outside en plein air. Nevertheless, if the weather is bad we usually have access to the studio inside the hotel, where we can draw and sketch, too.
