The Italian Paintings

These paintings, created on location, are the result of a two month journey by bus and train from Sicily to Northern Italy. Anthony and Beryl spent most of their time in the south, a little understood region with a very different history from the north. In the south, they stayed in  Catania, Cefalu, Matera, Ostuni and L’Aquila.

In the north they painted in Rome, Florence, and near Lugo in Emilia Romagna.

In each city they made friends and learned local stories which are presented in a video that will be screened at the gallery on November 10th, 6:30 to 8 PM.

Painting in Italy April 28 - July 5

I arrive in Catania, Sicily for an extended painting expedition April 29. Six of my students will join me May 4th for a two week workshop. We will explore and paint Taormina, Siracusa, Vittoria, Ragusa, and Agrigento - among other exceptional locations on this sun drenched island.

My paintings bear witness, from the street, to a variety of places and cultures. They need to be viewed first hand to be fully appreciated. Small jpegs on a glowing screen are a poor substitute for the real thing. This is why I invite you to visit me in my studio.

If, however, you wish to follow the progress of my work and gain a glimpse of earlier series, you may follow me on Instagram: @holdsworthpaintings
