Instructor: Bernard Dellario
Location: Castello di Petroia, Gubbio, Italy
Mediums: Oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolor or pastel. Bernie demonstrates and teaches in gouache, oil and acrylic.
Explore painting the gently rolling Umbrian countryside in magnificent Italian light using minimal plein air materials and techniques! Bernie Dellario’s credo that you don’t need a lot of gear to achieve big results will be front and center as he demonstrates how to keep your setup “lean and mean” but still gather the information needed in your plein air work. The setting for this art adventure is the beautiful Castello di Petroia, a 10th century castle in the Umbrian countryside, near the historic medieval city of Gubbio. Come paint, explore and get inspired!
The venue for this week-long art immersion is the 10th Century Castello di Petroia, an authentic medieval fortress perched on a hilltop between the towns of Perugia and Gubbio, with inspiring views of the surrounding landscape. The castle, birthplace of Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino (b.1422), is surrounded by a 600-acre traditional Umbrian farm with beautiful olive groves, hiking and horse-riding trails, meadows, woods and abundant wildlife.
