You might wonder what a painting holiday in the Italian Lakes is like? At Lake Iseo which is situated between Garda and Como. A  shy but beautiful Lake is known by the Italians as the ‘Secret Jewel’ is a pure joy for artists who enjoy painting stunning scenery without throngs of tourists, but able to watch local Italians go about everyday life in a stunning backdrop. Based at the pretty old port of  Sulzano in the stunning Rivalago Hotel. Breakfast time taken in the gardens leading down to the lakeshore a perfect way to start the day.

Days are  spent visiting the pretty small villages and towns dotted around the lakeshore, arriving usually by ferry with views from every angle.

Painting subjects range from intimate balcony scenes, to bobbing boats and colourful villas reflected into a warm turquoise lake all viewed from beneath the shade of an Olive tree.
