Renaissance Retreat: a 7-day getaway in an enchanting 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 painting studio, while some of the time will be spent sketching the model in the countryside. Working from a live model, our primary considerations will be: Composition, Likeness, Light, Glazes and Scumbles.

Time not painting is dedicated to special activities enjoyed by all painters and accompanying family/companions: a cooking class and dinner with Michelin-starred chef Roberto Rossi, cheesemaking and wine tasting with the winemakers.

Maximum number of painting participants is 7.

Special rates for those not participating in the painting lessons.

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