Painting Cortona and Venice with artist, Kathy Karas

Do you know that feeling when a painting touches your heart? Embraces you, captures you, makes you think and feel?

When it suddenly evokes a memory, an emotion pulls you in and stirs you.

It may be the scene, the colours, the texture, the impression, the illusion. It really doesn’t matter what it is and it will be different for everyone.

Imagine if you could do that for yourself. Create that artwork. Capture a beautiful, sweet moment in time. To forever be stirred by passion and feeling and flooded with memories. An artwork that touches your lips with a smile and pulls you back to a place deep inside your heart, where it remembers that special moment.

Kathy Karas has enormous talent and an even bigger heart. With her guiding you through watercolour workshops as we visit places you have only ever dreamed of, you will develop the skills to capture your own memories.

On a recent Painting Trip to Cortona and Venice Kathy held daily workshops teaching her students the techniques and skills to capture the sights and scenes in both sketches and watercolour. And the results were amazing!

“The great thing about staying a while in one place is that you get the chance to really get to know the landscape at different times of the day. Some early birds were keen to get up early for a walk and it was on a misty early morning walk that I took the reference photo to later paint this picture.

I help you take good photos to paint from ‘with an artist’s eye’. You will return with many great reference photos that will immediately transport you back to your trip” -Kathy.

“Ah, Bella Cortona! I demonstrated this painting of this simple but lovely scene in Cortona. It is a good point to remember that we aren’t always trying to paint the big tourist picture. There are many little interesting scenes like this to paint while in Tuscany along with ancient doorways and cobblestoned alleyways…we are never lost for subject matter. This one is all about the shadows. I can show you how.” – Kathy

 

Not all painting demonstrations are structured, in fact, some are impromptu, done at random times when Kathy feels she has something to share. The following image was a quick little study done as we waited for the train to take us to Arezzo, which was slightly delayed. Looking up from the train station, Cortona sat beautifully perched atop its hillside, a great view to capture.

With its ancient buildings and canals, Venice provides the artist with such an abundance of artistic inspiration it’s hard to know where to begin. From the most intricate of scenes to the simplicity of a reflection you will accumulate painting content for years to come.

“ Watercolour is a fabulous medium for painting water reflections. I love demonstrating these techniques. And remember it isn’t always about the accuracy but trying to capture a moment in time that is most important” – Kathy

“These pen and wash paintings are a favourite style of painting for beginners and I am always excited to see my students quickly catch on to painting after I have demonstrated and shared some neat little tips and tricks!” – Kathy
