You are warmly invited to join me for a special painting week in the  old village of Brunate set 700m above Lake Como. Brunate has incredible views on the Alps and looks directly at Monte Rosa. From the village there are hikes up or down the mountain.

We will paint each morning and afternoon using mainly watercolours. The workshop will focus on the use of colour. Our house, where the workshop will be based, has a splendid garden with many trees that can provide shade and a large terrace where we can paint outside. There is also a nearby gymn overlooking the lake and mountains where we can work.

There will be plenty of time to enjoy visiting the town of Como and to take a boat ride on the lake to visit the famous gardens of Villa Carlotta, an ideal place to paint. There will be a free afternoon when you can visit Bellagio, or the nearby picturesqe villages of Cernobbio and Torno.

Please take into consideration that places are limited to 10 people only.
