The two-day and four-day workshops are suitable for beginners as well as for advanced painters. If we need to sit for a long time we will use an easel. We work with watercolour and charcoal. The materials are not included in the lesson fee but could be purchased at cost prize. When we paint in the gorge it is important to wear closed shoes and to bring a small backpack for the painting materials.
Painting workshops: Monday to Thursday from 9:00 to 14:00 (data available on request)
The authentic village of Melambes has small streets where it seems that time stood still. To paint we will find an ideal spot under the shade of the plane tree at the picturesque little square with its historical source from 1879. The basilica “Agia Paraskevi”, with frescoes from the Byzantine era, will improve the decorum! Through vistas you discover new picturesque little streets. The village is surrounded by an impressive mountainous landscape with fantastic views. All together you find in Melambes and its surroundings many interesting locations to go painting.
In a relaxed way, painting along the waterfront of the harbour of Agia Galini. After the fishermen have thrown out their nets during the night and return in the morning to the village, their abandoned bobbing fishing boats are a beloved theme for us!
With the use of a clear colour palette of different shades of blue, green and pink you will discover that a painting along the water front will get a sunny Greek appearance!
Through experience we have learned that the combination of painting and walking delivers a wonderful day of painting! Relaxation after effort! We walk in the gorge and we capture the most fascinating spots in a small sketch/water colour block.
At the end of the workshop/course your mind is empty but your sketch pad is full!
