Venice is one of the most painted cities in the world, and because of its legacy with ‘grand masters’ such as Canaletto is daunting and challenging to many students. On this tutorial painting holiday Hazel Soan will help you overcome any inhibitions and reservations and capture the glory of Venice – a must for all painters.



Venice appeals to artists because of its wonderful Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic architecture, its many canals (150), bridges (400) and piazzas, and the special atmospheric light. Venice has something for every student from flower-decked balconies to the view from the Accademia Bridge of the Grand Canal towards Santa Maria della Salute.











Central Venice is a compact area, encircled by the Grand Canal. At the heart of Venice is the glorious Piazza San Marco and apart from gondalas, vaporettos and water taxi’s this central part of Venice is traffic-free

Venice is above all a city for Venetians and you will find greengrocers, bread shops, the local fish market and “bacaro” (Venetian winebar) around the corner from the famous tourist sights like the Rialto Bridge and St Mark’s Basilica. There are plenty of quieter canals and streets with and palazzos to be found across the Grand Canal on Dorsoduro and in the Frari Quarter and around Santa Maria Formosa and Campo del Ghetto Nuovo.









HAZEL SOAN is a talented and versatile artist. Her holidays are hugely popular because of her enthusiasm and relentless energy, which she devotes to helping you improve your techniques and overcome challenges. All students will find her group demonstrations inspiring and invaluable. She will be working alongside you every day and will help you select suitable painting subjects and provide guidance on how best to capture the glory of Venice. Hazel appeared as one of the professional artists in the Watercolour Challenge TV series and is well known through her many instructional books including, Watercolour Rainbow, Watercolour Landscape Techniques, African Watercolours.
