A fun week with a lovely group in Umbria, high up in the Sibillini National park, with trips to Spello, the Piano Grande and Norcia, dinner at an Abbey and lots of excellent work. 

Maisie is fast becoming my star pupil with two excellent pieces so far this summer one in France and now this excellent flower study in Italy.

Here is some of the pieces the others were working on in Italy with Maisie’s help. A great group and loads of fun, thanks everyone for working so hard.

I will be returning to Il Collaccio near Preci, a peaceful, family run, agriturismo set in the truly spectacular surroundings of the Sibillini National Park in Umbria. If you fancy starting your day with freshly baked croissants, fresh fruit and coffee and spending the morning drawing withme usually on the large veranda outside the studio, occasionally looking up to rest your eyes on the distant hill top village of Preci across the valley, then taking a short stroll up the hill to the restaurant for a delicious Italian buffet lunch followed by a relaxing afternoon either swimming, exploring the lovely walks surrounding Il Collaccio, just chilling or do some more drawing. Dine in their restaurant serving locally sourced cuisine and watch the sun set down the valley.

During the week we will arrange an outing to a local vineyard for a wine tasting lunch and a chance to explore an historic hill top town plus a trip up into the Piano Grande to see some amazing flora and take home some of the lentils, truffles and wild boar for which the area is famous. It is a fabulous holiday and this is my 7th year there, I love it so much.

All details will be on my website http://www.annswan.co.uk
