“This is my first time visiting this particular area of Italy. I look forward to exploring the local villages with you as we paint with expert local knowledge from Madeline.  Also, to experiencing the local cuisine and spectacular countryside. I know we will have a lot of fun and a few laughs along the way as well as coming home with a stash of new work and I hope lots of renewed enthusiasm and inspiration for your painting journey.”
