Watercolour Painting courses in Italy

Italy is a wonderful country. It is one of my personal favourite holiday destinations. It has everything from history, wonderful buildings, culture, amazing scenery and a cosmopolitan feel to it. Italy, in my opinion, oozes style. The food is great. Their local shops sell home grown local produce that overflows with taste and the wine tastes much better than it does over here in the UK. It must be the warm climate !

Watercolour painting is very popular and where better to improve your skills than under the watchful eyes of professional artists and in wonderful surroundings.
