Art tour toVenice and Verona
with Igor Dubovoy

7 to 13 October 2019
1 550 Euro
Single room
A plein air in Venice is the dream of any artist. This city is amazing, gorgeous and shabby. It looks like an aging beauty who living in the past and the modern life is of no interest to it. Nothing is changing here. Graceful black gondolas glide along narrow channels. The phone does not catch the Internet in the complex maze of the streets. The cloths hung up to dry on long ropes ... Everything as it was many centuries ago - bridges, cathedrals, palaces, squares, canals and streets that have retained their charm.

We will not hurry, run around the tourist attractions choosing subjects for painting. Venice begins and ends where you are. It is everywhere. We will try to feel this city, to see what our guide, native Venetian Marco, will share with us.
Igor Dubovoy
I was born and live in Moscow. I take a great interest in painting since childhood, although I never received an artistic education. I studied everything myself. Recently, almost all my time I devote to what I really like - painting. I paint in oils and watercolors, conduct master classes, participate in watercolor exhibitions in Russia and abroad. In 2017, following the results of the exhibition, my work was selected for the Fabriano watercolor museum.

Weather in Venice
Venice weather in October is cooler than previous months as autumn is well underway. Temperatures are mild and generally stay in the high-teens during the day with mild humidity levels throughout the month. The region enjoys a subtropical climate with long, hot summers and wet, cold winters. Autumn is often one of the best times to visit Venice because it's not too hot and temperatures are still very mild and agreeable. Winds blow in from the north and northeast and can cause temperatures to fall at night, which can be quite cold and is definitely jacket weather. The average temperature is a pleasant 18°C at midday that begins to lower in the evening to around 9°C. The average sea temperature is a mild 20°C with an average humidity of 60%. It rains on ten days of the month, but you'll still get to enjoy up to 11 hours of daily sunshine.
