Painting in Rome with Peter Brown PNEAC, RBA, PS, ROI, RP

An exclusive opportunity to paint alongside ‘Pete the Street’ in the Eternal City of Rome in early June when the special light illuminates the architectural gems.

Rome is an architectural masterpiece with an intoxicating mix of classical ruins, extravagant Baroque churches and fountains and glorious Renaissance palaces. These historical landmarks are normally bathed in a special light in June.

'Pete the Street'

Peter Brown is President of the New English Art Club and a leading figurative artist. He is best known for his detailed and atmospheric depictions of buildings and street scenes in cities, so Rome greatly appeals to him.  Rome is a vibrant city and ‘Pete the Street’ will be capturing the essence of life on the streets, the cobbled alleyways and the bustling café-lined piazzas, as well as the historical landmarks.

Rome’s most famous monuments are located within the Centro Storico, which is traversed by the River Tiber.  They include Michelangelo’s spectacular Piazza del Campidoglio, the Roman Forum, the Colosseum and the Terme di Caracalla, most of which are now in splendid ruins.  The Pantheon, Bernini’s Fountain of Quattro Fiumi, Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps are close by. The Vatican City lies across the River Tiber and is dominated by the massive dome of the Basilica di San Pietro.
