Do you recognize this?

I know.  It can be quite scary to travel solo.
Especially when it is your very first time.
You may be unsure whether  a single trip is something for you.
Are you afraid that you will not feel comfortable in the group?
Or that you are only going to meet old and unhappy people.
That there is no time for yourself?

During the Urban Sketching Safari in Rome, I got to know Stephan as an enthusiastic teacher and amiable person. He taught me to look better and to dare more, to work in a larger format and to use material I had never thought about! I look back with great pleasure on this introduction to Rome and Urban Sketching! An absolute must for both novice and advanced draftsman: Stephan knows how to challenge everyone at his or her own level! Combined with Mariët’s fantastic care, this is guaranteed to be a wonderful trip ?

In the first place we came for painting and we learned a lot from Mieke about materials, the latest techniques, and a different way of looking.
Tips that I immediately started working with at home. It was also very nice that we were allowed to work on beautiful canvases, quality paint and great brushes. But we didn’t just come to paint, we also wanted to see some of Italy.
We stayed in a beautiful house with a view of Lake Bolsena, with a beautiful garden where we could eat and paint.
From here Mariét took us to the beautiful towns Bolsena, Marta and Sorano, where we also painted on location. The visit to the sculpture museum of Niki de Saint Phalle was truly an experience. but also the walk on the Etruscan path in Sorano was beautiful.
But above all we laughed a lot together in the evening while enjoying a glass of wine and guitar music. I am looking forward to the reunion and when I will have my paintings at home I will often think about this fantastic week.
Thank you Mieke and Mariét for the good care and lessons.
Greetings Hennie de Vries.

Hello Mariet,
Such nice pictures on facebook, great.
and . . . . the limoncello is delicious Haven’t finished it yet ???
The painting week was a lot of fun, from start to finish. From the pick-up in (and return to) Orvieto by Mieke as well as the reception on the terrace in Bolsena with you Mariet.
The care was in tip-top order throughout the entire week and Mieke’s painting lessons were very inspiring and professional, we also learned some nice new techniques.
The excursion day to il giardino dei Tarocchi and the exciting Etruscan walk were also very beautiful. Too bad you can’t be there Mariet, July 5th. We’ll take one on your health. Love Lida Tiebie
