A Watercolour Workshop with Cecil Rice
I am delighted to announce the forthcoming watercolour workshop with Cecil Rice to be held in Venice in May 2016. In his own words,
“In this watercolour workshop I will share many of my own discoveries about how to paint the light, architecture and water here. I have developed my own style and approach to painting Venice over the decades and along this route have learned much from artists such as Turner and Monet. We will explore subjects by sketching on a small scale in colour and in two cases, painting a larger, more developed watercolour. One of these larger pieces will take a view across the lagoon as its inspiration and the other will be based on a canal view”.
He will be flanked during the 4-day event by Sarah Sherwood who will accompany the small painting group during a warming up sketching session around Venice.

After moving to Italy she transferred her skills to the tourist hospitality industry, accompanying international guests across Europe, caring for their welfare and needs; troubleshooting and organising impromptu events for their entertainment.
A 'creative person' herself, she dabbles in all manner of artistic pursuits and takes great pleasure in the organisation of cultural activities for her international guests here in Venice, Italy.
