The Architecture of Light – Lucca, Italy: May 22 – 26, 2017 $895 USD
Join Thomas W. Schaller for a unique art-making experience in the heart of Tuscany.
In this exclusive 5-day workshop, a limited number of artists will join me to explore this amazing city through the lens of plein-air watercolor sketching. Primarily, we will focus on ‘ways of seeing’. From initial impression sketches, we will begin to discover how to identify the roots of our own unique inspiration.
The importance of site sketching, shape composition, value layering, and complementary color orchestration, are among the elements of successful image making that will be covered.
The theme of much of my work is a study of complements – light vs. dark; warm vs. cool: and the man-made vs. the natural. And beautiful Lucca offers the artist an endless source of inspiration to explore those topics. “

Dating from the Etruscan era, the beautiful walled city of Lucca is a true gem ; a showcase of Medieval and Renaissance art and architecture. And the famous Piazza – built on the elliptical footprint of the ancient Roman amphitheater – is one of the world’s most memorable outdoor living rooms.
