Lemon Yellow

by Sarah Glyde on October 16, 2019

This is an exciting, new two-week Art Safari combination in southern Italy, painting its natural and cultural riches.

The first week of our holiday begins in Amalfi – sketching along the serpentine edge of the Sorrentine Peninsula.  Here steep, craggy cliffs plunge into a sparkling Mediterranean and pastel-coloured villages spill down the mountain sides that are terraced with fragrant lemon groves.  The pages of our sketchbooks will fill with spectacular vistas, elegant villas and arbours laden with bright bougainvillea, hillside churches in mix of architectural styles, and street scenes among the ancient alleyways and archways…

The second week is spent painting in Sicily at a delightful Agriturismo (farm stay), surrounded by centuries-old olive trees.  The island is full of contrasts – from fertile volcanic land, ancient and arid ruins to baroque style architecture – it offers fresh inspiration for painters around every corner…  During our time here, we will explore the western side of the island, painting secluded inlets and coves, fishing villages, Greek temples, and shimmering slat pans dotted with windmills. 

In between our painting stops, there is time to shop in the numerous wonderful little boutiques and stop for an energising ‘caffé and cannoli’ or a mid-afternoon gelato!
