Fresia Studios - Video

Fresia Studios, on Lake Como in Italy, offers 6-day plein-air painting workshops from May to October (time to start thinking about next year).

This is a video of Jerry Fresia doing a large outdoor painting. For him, it's all about enjoying the colors, the paint and the outdoor scene in front of you and conveying that enjoyment to the viewer. He doesn't neglect composition, drawing and values, and these fundamentals are part of what he teaches, but he believes that joy, rhythm and personal vision are also essential to painting.
