Workshop in Italy. "Painting Under the Tuscan Sun", Lucca, mercoledì, 19. giugno 2019

My dear friends! I invite everyone to participate in my WORKSHOP, which will be in Italy in 2019, in the city of Lucca, Tuscany.
Karolina Lenart invited me to participate in this wonderful event, in her beautiful Villa Casa Fiori, in the city of Lucca, Tuscany.
More information you can find out here:

"Discover the authentic essence of the towns, villages and countryside of Tuscany, one of the world’s great cultural destinations, through the joy of on location painting. Few regions in the world offer such a rich travel experience, and capturing your journey in oil colours takes that experience to new heights. Through painting, we will go beyond simply capturing a photographic likeness of a place, to capturing your personal interpretation of its life and energy. Through plein air studies, we see more clearly and connect more deeply; you will make the lessons of Tuscany’s history, culture, architecture and landscape your own.

You will also experience the best of Tuscany’s food, wine, and cultural riches. Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in one of the world’s great places. Join artist and instructor Vitaly Makarov for a fun and enlightening 10 days that will enhance both your on-location painting skills and your appreciation for this remarkable region that holds such a very special place in the hearts of the world."

• Painting instruction by Vitaly• Outstanding Italian food during entire stay with best local wines
• Day trip to coastal village of Lerici • Day trip to Volterra • Cooking Lesson with personal Chef • Lucca town tour • Painting in Villa Reale • Wine Tasting • Puccini concert in a Romanesque church • Glamorous Tuscan farewell dinner

Your Tuscan Experience

Our 10-day courses are held at the beautiful Casa Fiori, on the idyllic ******** hill overlooking the city of Lucca.

"Tuscany is one of Italy’s most cherished regions. Its beautiful countryside is reminiscent of the landscapes of Renaissance masterpieces. Along with rolling hills and vineyards, it also offers a rich artistic heritage including exquisite art and architecture – not forgetting premium wines and delicious cuisine.

Set between the blue-green Apennine Mountains and the turquoise Tyrrhenian Sea, Tuscany is the heart and soul of Italy. Known and loved for its splendid landscapes, charming low hills, olive groves, vineyards, and beautiful old farmhouses, Tuscany is the ideal location for any artist.

The weather in Tuscany in June is wonderful, with warm days filled with sun and noce warm evenings perfect to seat and enjoy al fresco!. The air is clearer than in the hot summer months, making for excellent views and great painting weather. Your days will be divided between painting at home with Vitaly and daytime excursions to local points of interest where you will have your painting sessions and time to discover Tuscany.

As an immersive cultural experience, we also offer activities including a classical Puccini concert, cooking class with our Chef who specializes in Tuscan cuisine, and wine tasting in our favourite local vineyards. These are only a few of our many close-by attractions."

"My friends, we are will 10 days immersed in the world of painting in a beautiful place - Italy, Tuscany. What we can do in 10 days? I can not promise that during this time you will become great masters. Of course, this is impossible in such a short time. But I'll try teach you how to continue to learn. How to teach yourself. I will give you the main direction and methods, as you paint on. I will teach you how to learn from nature. I'll tell you about the composition in painting, I will tell you about the great significance of tone in painting and, of course, color. I'll tell you and show you how to apply the "golden section" method in the composition of paint. And most importantly, I will try to give you the most important thing - love for art, for nature. Impressionism is impressions, feelings, love, without it the painting will be dead, but if your works will have life, feelings, that your viewers will feel it. I will paint next to you, I will help you, I will try to keep this course in your heart ... "
