Vibrant Vernazza: painting the Cinque Terre

Capture the essence and beauty of Vernazza/Corniglia in strong, fluid watercolor. Guided by Susie a professional Vernazza Artist; she will encourage you to be bold, experimental but most of all to be ‘free’ and to enjoy the painting process.
The key to bold fluid watercolors (without the safety net of a pencil underdrawing) is courage, preparation and spontaneity. As a medium it can be delicate and transparent or vibrant and rich in consistency.
Mastering watercolor takes years of practice, forging a special relationship between you and the materials; therefore these few hours are not aimed at producing a ‘pretty painting ‘ but rather encouraging you to be bold and free in your approach and to give you a taster of the many possibilities this wonderful medium is capable of.

Session plan 
After meeting your teacher in Vernazza, she will bring you by car over Corniglia where the session will be held, we will first absorb our beautiful surroundings. Susie will then chat about the aims of the lesson and will do a short demonstration on preparing the paint in advance. We will start with ‘loosening up’ mark making to get you into the flow, then she will be there to show you some watercolor techniques and guide you on a one-to-one level to meet your individual creative needs, whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced painter.

Meeting point 
Meeting up point is at 9.00 am at the Pirate bar in Vernazza (at the top of the town near the post office)
Please wear sensible shoes.
