Watercolour Landscape Course
Create your own carnet de voyage

In this workshop we will roam around the island to discover exciting views, wild landscapes and picturesque villages. This course will enable you to paint quick watercolour sketches, teaching you to paint freely and with feeling. The sketches will then be gathered together with any thoughts, found objects, for example shells, tickets, dried flowers, feathers etc… to be made into a personal carnet de voyage.
Materials you should bring:
• Watercolour paper at least 2 blocks or books (A4 size)
• A wooden or plexiglass drawing board • A set of different sized paintbrushes (preferably sable)
• A small basic set box of watercolours

Cadmium lemon, Cadmium red, Alizarin crimson, Ultramarine blue, Cobalt Blue, Manganese blue, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber, Payne’s grey and any other colour you may wish to add.
• A diary, or scrap book.

Oil on paper
The theme of this course is light in all its qualities, the technique used will be simple and meditative, working on emotions. We will meet in a different location each day, and our work will begin from a narrative suggestion to help you catch the feeling and atmosphere to start creating.

• Linseed oil
• Turpentine or solvents for diluting colours and cleaning paintbrushes
• A wooden or plexiglass drawing board
• A block of semi-rough or smooth paper

Teacher: CHRISTINA PENNATI

Cristina Pennati was born in Varese, Italy, in 1973. Following her degree in Visual Arts at the European Institute of Design, Milan, in 1997, she started working as a decorator. This lead her to open her own atelier in Barasso (VA) in the year 2000, where she works mainly on furniture decoration and trompe l’oeil. She also runs several painting classes (watercolour, portrait, and oil painting). She also works as an illustrator for some Italian magazines (Airone, Qui Touring, and Donna Moderna). Her personal artistic theme develops around the many aspects and potentials of women’s energy. In 2010 she co-founds and participates to the St.Art (Station Art) project. Housed in an old pipe factory in front of a railway station, St.Art is a group of independent painters and sculptors working together and promoting group and solo exhibitions for emerging artists. She is also co-founder of the "Progetto Nodo", a female-only artists group proposing the art experience in its various forms as a mean of self-development: art-therapy, visual arts, performances, poetry, photography, yoga and other energetic practices.
