Watercolor art painting workshops with Jacqueline Newbold

Painting in Orvieto, Italy May 16-22, 2021

I am very excited to tell you that registration is now open for my Italian Watercolor Workshop!  Would you like to join me on this fantastic painting experience in Italy?  Imagine how lovely it will be to spend a week surrounded by the rich sights, sounds, tastes, and colors that Umbria has to offer.

We will explore the streets of the historic hilltop village of Orvieto, known for its stone archways, Italian piazzas, espressos and gelatos, Italian wine, and delicious foods, and the Duomo di Orvieto widely considered the most glorious example of Italian gothic design.  Every corner, every door, every window embellished with spring flowers can easily become a fun painting!

Our studio time will be like a beautiful tango, learning how to create rich glowing color combinations, recreating bright sunshine and colorful shadows on paper, preparing our journal pages for paintings and art.  We will enjoy time learning sketching, watercolor, color mixing, and pen and ink perspective designs that we will put into action when we step out into the beautiful cobblestoned streets of Orvieto, capturing our Italian moments together.

Paradiso!

Painting in Provence:  Experience the magic of Provence: cypresses, olive trees, red-tile roofs, screeches of cicadas, scents of wild thyme and lavender, medieval villages, colorful markets and of course sun-filled landscapes, the very same that inspired the Post-Impressionists. You will discover why Provence has been an inspiration for generations of artists like Van Gogh and Cezanne. A trip you will never forget!

Artist Jacqueline Newbold Art Journals and Sketches

Much of Newbold’s inspiration comes from her travels. She brings her efficiently organized backpack of painting supplies and art journal and experiments with various imaginative ways to combine watercolor with mixed-media.  Spending time creating in her art journal is her favorite artistic outlet.

“Art journaling to me is not so much about making art but recording my life in a colorful way.  My journals are a place where I can experiment with different art mediums, sort things out, write about my life, my sorrows, my adventures, and travels.  I play with color, sketch, doodle, take notes, make lists, add inspiring quotes and write about my day.  The process is fun, and I love when the result surprises me.
