Our guests on our painting holidays are a varied bunch! We’ve had seasoned artists to complete beginners. Travellers have varied skills, brushes and colours in their toolkit. Here is a quick list and few tips to consider when packing for Italy.
- Purchase the best materials you can afford. Prioritise quality over quantity and you will notice a great improvement in your work.
- Don’t go wild with purchasing new supplies. If you haven’t done much painting before, a small students set is likely to be enough –Try to bring a variety of brushes and size- i.e. 4,8,12
- Use the holiday to build initial skills and familiarity with your brushes – find out what you like and don’t like then you can start building your collection once you are home.
- Here’s a list of colours we suggest – Remember to pack them in your hold luggage as liquids over 100ml won’t make it through security!
Finally, don’t forget the sun cream and a hat to protect you from the sun whilst sitting outside!
A detailed list of brush sizes and paper types is sent to all guests a few weeks before the start of their Flavours Painting Holiday.
