“The Work of Qi Yang challenges two painting conceptions of Western and Eastern arts constantly. Yang merges Zen, together with German Expressionism that emphasizes emotion in the paintings and particular about lines, colors, composition and technique.”
(Alisan Fine Arts)
This workshop is an offer for the painting combined with poetic thinking for the Italian landscape – from the region Toscana to Assisi. We will at first learn to sketch direct in der nature in front of beautiful surroundings, for example, trees, forests, mountains, waters and ancient castles, churches, old houses, etc. After sketching the techniques of aquarelle and color ink will be taught, both of which can be used either separate or as mixed technique.
However for your practicing work you can instead of sketching to take photography to strengthen your remembrance of the objects in the landscape and to catch glimpses of every movement for recalling what you have seen and sensitized. Therefore you can also follow your fantasy and your “I – Being” to paint your imaginative landscape.
Aquarelle painting used with color ink can generally generate quiet timbre or strong sounds as musical performance, which become mediative or emotional naturally – somehow even beyond expectation. Accompanied with the workshop the art theory of the composition on the landscape painting will be taught.
The workshop `Landscape Painting´ makes you lucky that you will learn to paint your own Landscape and enjoy the leisured art moments by yourself.

Mariette Egreteau Martelli was born in France but now lives in Arezzo, where she has been a teacher for more than thirty years. She has a scientific background and has always been interested in the link between science and art, with her curiosity fully satisfied in the spectacle offered by nature.
Light games on ordinary objects, the deformation of reality in shades and reflexes, the transparency of the sky and water are her favourite subjects. She mostly uses watercolour to express herself, for its immediacy and union between water and light. Since 1998 she has taken part in a number of collective and personal exhibitions. She is bilingual in French and Italian and fluent in English.
It is in the lucid and sensual poems by Baudelaire that Mariette Egreteau’s aquarelles may, partly, find a voice echoing their glaring strength. And when, in his best poems, the poète maudit gaily evokes his pagan taste for life, then can we perceive, at least in part, a unison “voice”, in terms of joy of the senses and clear French thinking – which is together intuitive and rational – in what I would define as a “joyful” harmony with Egreteau’s painting.
In Egreteau’s aquarelles everything reveals her creaturality full of wonder and meaning, with a rounded, bright intensity that conjures up the joy and soul of things…
