‘Plein air’ in all mediums
Hosted by Arte Umbria, Italy at Tenuta di Poggiolame,
05010 Montegabbione (TR)
I am delighted to be tutoring a new course at Arte Umbria next year. The course is intended for watercolorists or oil painters. Beginners welcome.
The holiday includes 7 nights accommodation, breakfasts and dinners. Bookings must be made directly with Arte Umbria.
Tenuta di Poggiolame is the course accommodation, base camp or studio. It is a private home set in it’s own private estate of 220 acres (88 hectares). The house, set in the centre of the estate, is reached via a kilometre long drive providing total privacy and exclusivity.
All around the house is a superb landscape, thick with forest and woodland – pine and cypress, olive groves, walnut and fruit trees – rich with lavender and wild flowers.
Green hills and mountains stretch as far as the eye can see. In the distance hamlets, medieval castles and towers peek through early morning mists, when wild boar and deer can be seen foraging.
Sunrise and sunset in this magical landscape are spectacular.
In amongst the forest on our estate are many streams with mini cascades to discover. We have marked several trails out for our guests, which cross these streams and you can discover the nature trails made by wild boar, deer, porcupine and other wildlife.
