Day 6 – Korčula

Posted by on May 7, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

May 5, 2013 We have finally made it to Korčula!  The weather is a bit iffy but is suppose to clear up this afternoon. We started our day in Korčula with a Filigree Jewellery demonstration by Seba Dizajn.  Doka’s family had been making Jewellery for generations and now it is his turn. After the demo, everyone had time to themselves to wander around Korcula and take pictures.  We would reconvene for lunch at 12 and then painting would commence. The oil painters and Andrea decided to paint before lunch and found a spot down along the outside wall of Korčula where all the restaurants are.  They...

Day 5 – Islands of Badija & Vrnik

Posted by on May 7, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

May 4, check 2013 Today we are heading to the island of Badija and then Vrnik in the afternoon.  Our mode of transportation today is by boat and Stijepo is waiting for us in the marina. We piled my car with everyone’s stuff and then everyone had a nice little walk around the bay and met us at the boat.  It is about a 20 minute boat ride to Badija and Mark brought out his harmonica as we moved towards our destination. The pine trees along the shore of Badija look a bit like the trees that the Group of Seven paint but behind them is a 14th century Franciscan Monastery! Everyone found their...

Day 4 – Žrnovo

May 3, nurse 2013 Žrnovo, which is located inland and has no water or boats is our destination today.  This will be more of an architecture day today.  There are landscape vistas but this old town has lovely alley ways and deserted buildings at every turn. We arrived at 9:20am and Gaye started the day with a colour combination class…. everyone enjoyed and benefitted from her instruction, even Mark 😉 I then took Mark and Gaye on a  15 minute tour around the village to find locations to paint.  Mark found his first and then Gaye hers, just around the corner. We walked back to the main...

Day 3 – Račišće

Posted by on May 6, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

May 2, 2013 Today we are going to Račišće…. not an easy word to say with “ch’s” and “sh’s”  but fun to practice.  From Lumbarda, Račišće is about a 30 minute drive.  It is a lovely drive along the coast through several small villages.  The village of Račišće surrounds a small bay, with lots of small fishing boats, 2 churches and a statue of the previous Pope, John Paul. After some discussion, everyone headed toward the churches, which are side by side, and the oil painters focused on the small church while the rest, for the most part, focused on the large church… a small...

Day 2 – Lumbarda

Posted by on May 6, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

May 1st (National Holiday in Croatia) The morning started with Poppy just about to start picking sea urchin out of Ardyce’s foot.  But what they do here is to soak the affected area in olive oil and the spines just “float” out to the surface.  Ardyce applied some oil and in minutes one spine came out.  She left the oil on for the balance of the day and by dinner several more had come out.  It is better then digging around in your foot with a needle! Mark and Gaye decided to stay in Lumbarda to paint today.  So we started out with breakfast on the front deck at 8am and everyone was ready to...
