Description
Join the American painter Timothy Joseph Allen for an enchanting seven-day getaway at the Castello di Potentino, a Medieval castle in the heart of Tuscany, to paint from life with the goal of creating an oil portrait in a landscape as exemplified in many Renaissance portraits.

Most of the time with the model will be spent inside the castle’s chapel–transformed for the occasion into our painting studio–while some of the time will be spent sketching the model in the countryside.

If you are enthusiastic about portraiture and landscape as a subject, and are a beginner or advanced painter in pursuit of adventure and community, this is THE workshop for you!

Time not painting is dedicated to special activities enjoyed by all painters and accompanying family/companions: learning to make pasta, learning to make cheese, tasting nationally and internationally-awarded wines, swimming in the glorious outdoor pool, exploring the mysteries of the castle, strolling through the vineyards and gardens and discovering the secrets of the surrounding valley, including the nearby river, the Torrente Vivo.
