We had never before...
, Sep 2021
We had never before painted. Abele Vadacca (the maestro) was a great and patient teacher, and we learned a number of things about watercolor painting. But mostly fun and relaxing! Francesca, Abele’s assistant was very helpful with the logistics and overseeing our painting. Watercolor painting of the lake and surrounding mountains in the beautiful Il Giardini di Melzi. Well worth it. A highlight of our trip.
