 HOPE TO JOIN YOU AGAIN IN THE FUTURE

"I wanted to say how glad I was that I booked this painting workshop with Painting In Italy. Our hosts, Laura & Frank worked so well together to give a novice like myself a renewed confidence in my painting ability.  They  have also given me the practical skills to take my painting and drawing forward, hopefully to another level.  The social side was made all the more enjoyable by the other students that took part in the workshop, and by the efforts of Frank, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Humour was never far from the surface and frequently bubbled over to fits of laughter all round.  Laura was very clear and concise in her tuition, and her encouragement and charm has meant I now miss the 4 hour painting session routine very much. Everything was ready and prepared each morning for us to start painting. Brushes had been washed and paint and medium laid out ready on the palette.

 The hotel was excellent with fresh continental breakfasts, and the car transfer went smoothly as well. All the restaurants served very good food with an excellent menu.  I hope to join you again in the near future and would be happy to recommend this particular workshop to any novice or more experienced painter who wants to learn some classic still life painting techniques".  Ed Harris - Florence November 2015
