I had a wonderful 2 days exploring Venice and will update further in days to come. We explored our Cotman paints in class as the first of the 2 weeks of painting classes starting with 6 former guests and 7 new guests aboard the Queen Victoria. By making a tracing of a Venitian mask, I had the guests try out many of their 12 pan pallets and also use their rigger and 8 round brush.
in the second half of the class we explored washes and a varigatted wash trying to paint a canal scene from Venice with a gondola included as the focal point. I will be adding further insrtuction about this in this blog addition, but for now, I need to get back to preparing for our next class at sea.
it has been a more active cruise with destinations everyday, Dubrovnik, Kotor and Corfu tomorrow. The senses are being overwhelmed with all the incredible scenery.
