Painting Holiday with Kevin Scully

Simplifying the Landscape

6th - 13th June 2020 - more than 4 places available

A painting holiday suitable for all abilities in the medium of your choice

Course Details

During the week we will be looking at the various ways in which we can depict the essence of the beautiful countryside around Montelparo, and the ancient architecture of the surrounding villages. In our sketches and paintings we will concentrate on eliminating unnecessary detail whilst capturing the true spirit and atmosphere of this evocative part of Italy. There will be plenty of demonstrations and talks covering subject matter, composition, and colour combinations, as well as detailed one to one tuition.

*On the day of arrival we organise pick up times based on the groups arrival times either into Ancona airport or at the local train or coach stops. 

We will do our very best to make sure nobody has to wait for too long but please be aware we will be picking up other members of the group whose arrival times may not necessary coincide perfectly with your own and we ask for your patience.

If you are arriving at a time that really doesn’t tie in with the group or arriving a day or so earlier we can arrange for a taxi to pick you up.   The cost of a taxi is in the region of €150.  If there is anybody else arriving doing the same we will arrange it so that you can share the transport costs.

Similarly for departure, for retreats the rooms are to be vacated by 10:00 on the morning of departure.  Departure time will be set based on the majority of the group.  Again we will do our very best to accommodate everyone.
