Plein air: Landscape painting holiday in Tuscany - Mark Warner | Sonntag, 25. Oktober 2020

The scenery of the Italian Tuscany provides the perfect inspiration for beautiful landscape paintings. Mark Warner is a professional landscape painter and will teach you how to best capture the beauty of the Tuscan scenery. He will lead you to beautiful painting spots and teach you about aspects of line and composition as well as giving you confidence of using colour. In an informative yet relaxed and easy manner, he will demonstrate how drawing and sketching can inform and further your ‘plein air’ painting. Sketchbook work coupled with regular individual tuition, will help you develop your personal style. You will have fun experimenting with techniques and processes during a productive and relaxing week in a truly fantastic location. Create your own artwork step by step to capture the beauty of Tuscany's landscapes!

For centuries artists have drawn their inspiration from the Tuscan landscape and it is hard to find a better place to tank up on creativity and motivation, enjoy your art and improve your skills.

Romantic mountain villages like San Gimingnano Marittima, Montepulciano or Cortona and the tourist centers Pisa und Florence count among this region just as selected wine, shadowy pine forests, the beach and the sea. The wide landscape with its quaint hills full of olive trees, pines, cypresses and grapevines invite you to paint under blue skies. You will visit the beautiful town Cecina, the beach and many flourishing areas that are perfect for plein air painting. But even when there should be bad weather one day, there is the opportunity to paint in a studio. Still, the surroundings will give you inspiration to fill your canvas and capture the beauty of the Italian Tuscany.


The seminar hotel “Terenzana” is embedded between former forests and olive groves, framed by Cypresses and elm trees, which make it seem as if it was a Mediterranean painting.

A beautiful estate with the most idyllic surroundings, ideal for people that long for relaxation, refreshment and to escape the stress of everyday life. Tuscany is the perfect place if you enjoy flourishing nature. Not only summer, but all other seasons are perfectly convenient for spending your holidays in that region.
