Bella Italia, Italy through the eyes of an Artist by Pat Fiorello

Pat Fiorello has been teaching painting at Il Chiostro for several years.  This book contains over 80 of her paintings of Italy, including many from places which will be familiar to Il Chiostro alumni:  Lake Garda, Tuscany, Florence, Siena, and Venice.

Fiorello invites readers on an irresistible visual journey to share in her most vibrant memories of Italy—its grandeur and splendid views of sparkling blue lakes, breathtaking hilltops, quaint villages and sunlit gardens. Because of her reverence for exquisite light and color, the works of art emanating from Fiorello’s easel beckon viewers to open their eyes more fully, and to breathe in all the enchanting sights—near and far—that the world has to offer.

Article reproduced from American Art Collector:

Summer is here! Let’s have some fun painting hydrangeas.
Join Pat Fiorello, an instructor who has led more than 10 programs with Il Chiostro since 2008, for this paint-along session in oils.

We’ll be using Pat’s reference photo for the painting, but if you have hydrangeas available and want to set them up to paint from, feel free to do so.  We’ll have the hydrangeas in a clear glass vase so you will learn how to paint a glass vase for this or any other floral scene you may encounter.

Hydrangeas look challenging since they have so many petals and texture, but once you learn to simplify, suggest and just depict their essence instead of worrying about capturing every little petal, you will see how much fun painting hydrangeas can be!
