6 nights in Venice with Tony Hogan
Sketch and paint magical Venice with Tony Hogan. Capture some of the glorious architecture in watercolour, pencil and pen sketches and paintings. The ornate buildings, green shutters and colourful stucco dance in the watery reflections on each canal and light bnounces under bridges and into archways. It’s truly wonderful to paint there. Venice was the centre of trade, art, religious and political intrigue, fashion and design – and Tony Hogan gives so many fascinating insights into its past as well as tutoring you.
Tony Hogan leads this tour with guidance, group demonstrations and one-to-one tuition. Tony is well known for his magnificent paintings of Cornwall and Yorkshire as well as a leading demonstrator for major international art manufacturers/suppliers
We stay right in the heart of this atmospheric city so no time is lost. Our lovely hotel close to the Grand Canal, has its own wharf in Dorsoduro (with gondoliers), and is very close to the Peggy Guggenheim and the Academia, as well as many restaurants. We can take water buses and taxis easily. Hopping off the water buses we explore on foot carrying our sketchbooks, paints and stools so a reasonable level of fitness is required.
We tackle ornate buildings and churches and, with Tony’s tutoring, gain confidence, choosing details before tackling San Giorgio, Salute, Redentore, San Trovaso, or San Raphaelo.
As we venture out we stop to sketch canals, bridges, squares and bustling market places – such as the Campo del Margareta.
Venice is seductive and inspiring on so many levels. We hope you have time to savour delicious Venetian cuisine, gelato, Italian style, mood and the musicality of the language, as locals go about their daily lives.
