ITALY PAINTING RETREAT, Hotel Leone, Montelparo

Quick update – I’m recently returned from visiting the wonderful Hotel Leone, in Montelparo, Le Marche, owned and run by Madeline and Tim, and seeing all the wonderful locations we will be going to on my retreat ‘From Sketch to Success’ 20th-27th October 2020. It really will be a stunningly beautiful area in which to join the group for painting, and the service and facilities at the hotel are truly impeccable. The hotel have taken bookings already, so get in touch and you may also get a good deal on flights. While there, I also met with artist Fiona Forbes (who’s also from Fife as it happens! – now living in Wiltshire), so we’ve teamed up to advertise each of our two retreats in our own areas aswell. Below the hotel photos, you’ll see the flyer, which it would be great if you could circulate. More updates soon!

TISO Perth Outdoor Experience Evening last night

Great to meet everyone at the outdoor lifestyle event at Tiso’s flagship equipment store in Perth last night. Many thanks to Colin and Kathryn for the opportunity, and well done to all who participated making sketches from the screen images – hope they look good on your wall! You can follow up by getting involved in one of my ‘On Location’ art experiences I’m promoting as Location Art Scotland, where we’ll be drawing and painting our glorious scenery outdoors. Maybe see you at another Tiso event soon! If you fancy using the wonderful landscape of another country as your inspiration, join my upcoming art retreat in Italy ‘From Sketch to Success’ 20th-27th October 2020, where you’ll be pampered at the fabulous Hotel Leone, Montelparo.
