Videos are great, but there is no substitute for a live workshop. Your subject, your canvas and Chappy at the ready, guiding and encouraging you.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

I have a seasonal base of operations in the land of the 'Oude Meesters' (Old Masters). I try to make my way there for a few workshops in the spring, when the light is abundant and everything is vibrant.

Pisa, Italy

There's so much more to Pisa than just the tower. It's actually a great base of operations for exploring all of Tuscany. I try to head there after the Netherlands, or vice versa, when the weather is best.
