Isola di Ponza is known to discerning Italians who wish to avoid the bling and expense of staying on Ischia and Capri.  Ponza has very few hotels and is a longer ferry ride away from Rome and Naples, so attracts fewer visitors, which makes it very appealing for artists. The subject matter is perfect for Richard Pikesley who is known  for painting seascapes and beach scenes. Most days will be spent painting in and around Ponza and on the nearby beach at Chiaia di Luna. The local bus can be used to access different parts of the island.


Richard Pikesley RWS PNEAC is a leading figurative painter who incorporates abstract elements in his work. He is the current President of the New English Art Club and regular exhibits in the top galleries in London. This is a wonderful opportunity to work alongside him in a little known location at a time of year when it is still pleasantly warm, the light is good and the summer visitors have departed.






Whilst this painting holiday will not have a structured ‘teaching’ format Richard Pikesley is a very engaging and approachable guest artist who will give you much encouragement and guidance. ‘I find it hard to resist teaching and will offer whatever is appropriate including demonstrations, talks and guidance. I am a great believer in painters learning by watching each other work, so I am very happy to paint with an audience and to talk about it.  I expect to take sketchbooks, watercolours and oils and my focus will be on oils but students can work in any medium.’ Richard.
