Tuscan Dream Journal
Watch over Dorothy’s shoulder as she paints the villages and vistas of Tuscany.
Grab your colors ~ Ultra light, portable watercolor palette, brush and journal is all you need to experience being an artist under the Tuscan sun.
Paint on the fly! Pocket watercolors with watercolor postcards are easy to paint on a cafe table or park bench. No easel or heavy equipment and paints are required.
Make your paintings sparkle with tiny white spaces between your colors. White adds whimsy and fun.
Try Watercolor crayons to add linear details. On wet let them bleed. On dry paper their pigments will flow when a wash is applied over top.
Use a light touch to add whimsy. Look to see vibrant colors. Practice 10 minutes a day to train your eyes.
Learn to capture simple vignettes that express your inner artist. Go with the flow and bring home inspiration.

The Energizer Bunny and Tuscan muse rolled up in one, Danilo picks the olives on the side of this hill town by hand. Yes! He climbs each tree with a ladder and shakes the olives free. Late in October, each tree is surrounded with a net and the shaking begins.
Olives are gathered into orange buckets and taken to the next village for pressing. When you come to Tuscany for Danilo’s pasta making class, you use olive oil ~ extra virgin ~ harvested from his trees.
No Italian cooking lesson would be complete without a Tuscan dinner party. And of course, Chianti.
Danilo’s private restaurant has a spectacular view of Florence! In the photo, you can see the restaurant windows with rounded awnings overlooking the western sky.
No one goes home hungry from one of Danilo’s dinner parties. And no one goes home without an ample helping of creativity and inspiration!
