Watercolouring class "en Plein Air"
from €305

Watercolouring class "en Plein Air"

from 3-6 October 2019

Also this year, come to Mount Baldo and let your brushes slide across the paper, observe and paint nature and its biodiversity: from olive trees to dwarf mountain pines, to canyons and beech forests. Three days on Mount Baldo, where you can admire unlimited horizons which change constantly: glacial valleys with tall rocky walls, grasslands and meadows covered with flowers, the eastern Alps enclosing this spectacle and Italy´s biggest lake right beneath your feet. These are some of the reasons to visit this place, and get in touch with nature to paint it on paper. Lorenzo Dotti, naturalist artist, will try to communicate his passion for drawing by teaching the tricks of the trade and the wonders one can achieve when drawing feathers, leaves or the horizon. His course is dedicated to landscape painting "en plein air" and will take place in the Rifugio Monte Baldo (www.rifugiomontebaldo.it) from 3-6 October. Participants will be tutored by Lorenzo Dotti, who will help them in creating drawings, from the pencil sketch to the final brushstrokes.
