Painting plein air brings out the zen. I can introduce you to the tranquil locations and best beauty spots around Florence. There are many good painting locations scattered around the city and even in the midst of a busy street there are often pools of calm. I'll guide you and show you how to paint them.

By taking the correct approach you can make every stage of a painting look like the finished piece.


I'll explain color and show you how to use simple forms and detail to arrive at a painting in a step by step manner. Working fast is a virtue, not a vice and I'll show you how.

Confideniality is assured.
