  1. I would love to go back to East Coast of Canada. It has gone through so much with Climate Change that I would love to paint and sketch the challenges that the community is facing. It is very challenging times for many places in the world.

  2. i would love to paint a forest i used to hike through every summer. sadly it is now closed to the public.

  3. One of the most amazing journeys I ever took was driving across the desert in Egypt. The vastness, the shifting colours, the emptiness, the beauty. I would love to capture all of that in art somehow.

  4. Lived in Hawaii for awhile and I would love to go back and paint from some of the places there

  5. I would love to paint Table Mountain along side the ocean in South Africa. So beautiful there!

  6. I’m blessed to spend time at my home in Rainbow Beach Qld Australia. Just on the southern tip of Kgari Fraser Island and home of the magical Rainbow Sand Cliffs. I would drive along the beach to my favourite spot where the sands are the colours of a whole palette from pink to ochre to rust and beyond. It’s so spiritual and one of nature’s true gifts, especially to an artists eye 🎨🌈

  7. Scotland or Ireland if I could get there, but I live near St. Augustine, FL, one if the first Spanish settlements in The US. There are so many quaint walls, gates & doorways. I’ve taken photos of them thru the years. It would be a great start.

  8. I would love to be able to create paintings of the villages we visited when I was 14 years old. We drove the backroads of Germany and Denmark and stayed in many tiny inns and homes (the original Air BnBs!) I have so many pictures in my head of the beautiful cobblestone streets and quaint old buildings and castles we visited. While I may not get there in person again, I can still see and smell these wondrous places! It has been in my heart for years and maybe I will finally get those out and onto paper!

  9. In 2018 I moved from the Netherlands to Belgium, and I have seen a lot of beautiful places around the country since then. I think my most favorite one is the Church of Val Dieu in a village called Aubel. Every single time I go there I am deeply moved. It’s a beautiful Silence Church with a WWII history, as the friars helped protect a lot of innocent people against persecution and death from the Germans, and some of the friars were killed for that. There’s a beautiful park there as well, and there are a lot of local products still being made, like beer, cheese and sirup. The surrounding countryside is also breathtaking, especially when the apple and pear trees are in full bloom. I just love going there.

  10. A little lemon grove in Sorrento, Italy. It was behind a home, beside a street. As we were walking up from the train station, we passed it. Strangely, I couldn’t draw it from memory, because all I see in my mind are splashes of the fence and the tree tops, but I have this overwhelmingly satisfied feeling when thinking of it. I wish I had taken a picture.

  11. This year we’ve been to Entrevaux in France. That is a beautiful medieval town in the south of France! Would love to paint some of those houses!

  12. I am from India and there are just so many beautiful places here. But one place that has my heart is Pondicherry. The colonies and small lanes filled with bougainvillea are perfect to draw.

  13. Thanks for this opportunity! It’s hard to pick one place but I will go with New Orleans <3

  14. We have recently been fortunate enough to travel the North Coast 500, around the very top of Scotland. There were so many breathtaking magical places that I would love to paint and draw there that I dont think I could pick a particular place, maybe Smoo Cave or Ceannebeinne Beach and the caves ♥️

  15. My middle baby Paris is one year in to her solo travel around the world. I’m so inspired by her wanderlust and free spirit, being brave and adventurous and taking it slow and easy. Learning, watching, listening and embracing as she goes. She’s an incredible artist herself and I would so love to go and join her right now in her current stop in Morocco. We could sit together and paint the buildings with the incredible tiled patterns and the earthy tones of the desert. Sunset on our backs. We could share the stories of her travels and I could feel my heartbeat warm and grateful just for a moment with her lost in ourselves. 💕🌸💕

  16. I would love to paint my family home that was sold a few years ago – it would be a wonderful keepsake for my family

  17. Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot on LB2023. I would love to paint the open air markets I visited in Mexico.

  18. I would love to paint in Greece again where my cousin lives. It is a magical place! And thank you for offering this give away!

  19. I would love to paint in my hometown, de Great Church and some of the old electric busses… Or the white villa in the biggest park of this city… Maybe i just got to do that soon sometime! Its only 15 minutes by bike.

  20. I was in Eze in the south of France in another lifetime! I would love to learn how to paint the beautiful colours of the sky and water that I saw there.

  21. The Outer Hebrides off the coast of Scotland captured my imagination; would love to paint scenes from there.

  22. I would love to paint the Trolleys in London. I love that they’re double decker, and red, my favorite color

  23. Thank you. I’d love to win a spot. I would love to revisit and paint New York City. I was 19yrs young with a pocket full of dreams. It of course didn’t work out but it will always be my New York.

  24. I would love to paint the bridge in Venice from my honeymoon. That was such a memorable time in my life and something I hope to one day relive the experience.

  25. Hi Tony, Would really love to win a spot in Lifebook. I really want to make a painting or drawing of the Weissensee in Austria. I have been there with both of my parents when I was young. Very good memories there.But don’t know how to start. Thank you for the opportunity.

  26. I would love to paint scenes from my trip to Arizona. Sedona and the Grand Canyon were breathtaking.

  27. I would love to paint / sketch the Inner Harbour of Victoria, BC. There are so many historic / character buildings there set against the harbour , it’s just beautiful 🙂

  28. One place I have been I would love to paint is Oxford. It has such great texture in the buildings around town and it would be so fun.

    Thanks for the lovely session. I enjoyed it thoroughly!

  29. although I live in Italy I would love to paint my home town of London, the streets of London. When I lived there I never really appreciated the colours of London and now you also have the new architecture mixed with the old, so much choice to do urban sketching but a bit frightening at the same time.

  30. I would love to paint a scene on Colchester Pond in Vermont, where I used to live when I was young.

  31. I would love to paint the many beautiful sceneries of Hinchinbrook Island. I went there when I was 18 and have yearned to go back.

  32. Hi! I would like to paint a beach, calalafell near Tarragona (Spain) is where we spent our summers. I like the sound of the waves and feeling the wind in the face. There is another place that have beautiful beaches also, in Menorca (islas Baleares) where my cousin lives, but I don’t go so often because I have to take a plane to go there. But there is lot of beautiful landscapes 🥰

  33. Greetings from the great Pacific Northwest, Lakewood, Washington! My destination location isnt any fancy spot overseas or a fabulous castle, or US Monument. Mine is much closer to home. Literally. My folks’ home of 42 years will always be my safe space, the place where my heart feels most at rest. My parents are/were the most important people in my life. We spent decades in the gardens, just connecting with nature and making memories.

    Daddy passed in 2015 (he was severely brain damaged & physically disabled. But that didn’t stop him from sitting outside with Momma & I while we worked. We called him the Straw Boss! 🙂 Sadly, Momma (78) began having fractures in her back (9now) since 2016, so it has kept her from working in the yard.

    She loves my silly drawings and mixed media pieces, so I thought I could draw/create a spot in her back yard for her. I think the subject is beautiful and I’ve been wanting to take the time to do it. Why is it that there’s never time? I am sole caregiver to her, so running both households (mine & Hers) plus my two jobs, makes it very difficult to carve out time for my art.

    We have a beautiful fountain, we call her Rebecca, that sits in a little mini courtyard, surrounded by Northwest plants & Trees. I think she would love it if I created that for her, bringing her outside inside. Thanks so much for the chance at this… Blessings from the Evergreen State & PNW!

  34. I was lucky enough to visit Venice a long time ago. I still have beautiful images in my head. I know they’d fit this style perfectly. Otherwise I’d paint Wales where we now spend our annual holiday.

  35. An old shearing shed on a very large farm in New Zealand. It looks abandoned, but is actually still in use. The tin is rusty, the weeds are tall in the pens and there are old original fruit trees growing around.

  36. I have tons of photos from my summer trip to Rome Italy that I would like to paint. Thanks for the reminder.

  37. Nantes, France. I’d love to paint the school I went to, the house I lived in, little coffee shops I liked.. all the little streets and European street signs and cars.. sweet memories.

  38. Huntington Beach, Cali, we went to the loveliest pizza and beer place up in the hilly area across PCH from the beach. The trees and plant life, all around the little porches and colors of the restaurant were so sweet and romantic ❤️

  39. I just love visiting Skagway, Alaska…..My husband and I have been there 5 times and each time we have enjoyed the scenery and the feel of walking through history and going back to Gold Rush period. Main Street and its old buildings would make a lovely sketching subject. Thanks Toni for this opportunity to win a free spot on Life Book 2023.

  40. I’d love to paint the house we used to go to on a small island in the state of Maine’s unorganized territory, where there is no bridge to get there, nor running water or electricity once you do, and all the things we love about Maine: rocky beach, little harbor, big sky, dense woods, ferny openings, clamming, fishing, seals, sea birds, salt air, lichen, moss; the same furniture, dishes, shells on the mantels, and all the moods of the days and nights.

  41. I’d really love to paint the countryside of Eildon where my family often visited and we’d make up stories of the hills and surroundings in keeping with the Lord of the Rings tradition of elves, giants, fairies and ogres. And add in the kangaroos, wombats and deer that populate the area.

  42. I would love to draw/paint old Australian Queenslander style house with wrap-around verandah and lush gardens. I would love to own one of these too. 🙂

  43. Hi Toni, I haven’t travelled much but still I can think of many things here, where I’ve recently moved. It’s a very small town in Northern Ontario in Canada. Now that I want to get serious about sketchbooking as well, I seem to be seeing everything in a new light. Thanks for the opportunity x

  44. Paris, so much inspiration and amazing architecture everywhere…..Thanks Toni for your inspiration and guidance

  45. Hi Toni
    We just returned from a part of the Westcoast in South Africa called Western Cape. It’s flower season and the views are just spectacular. Historical buildings surrounded by orange/yellow /white/purple and even blue flowers like daisies. I would love to paint the old church and flowers on ceramic one day… Thank you for your inspirational sessions. Mwah

  46. I’d love to revisit photos of my travels in France and Italy – creating whimsical sketches that remind me of feeling young and free!!! Thanks for the brilliant lesson and the opportunity to win access to the Sketchbook 2023 course.

  47. I visited Edinburgh castle in Scotland a few years ago,would love to go back and have a go at painting it 😄

  48. I plan to paint a little church here in my home town of Sydney, Australia.

    Why wait to travel…there is so much beauty in our own backyard.

  49. Everywhere I go! I would like to have enough patience, time and skills to sit and take an impression of every place I visit. So many little wonders that we don’t notice as we take a stroll or travel! Thank you for your session.

  50. The Needles, Isle of Wight. The island is one of my favourite places & I’ve been on holiday there several times 🙂

  51. I would love to stay in a house that is perched between the ocean & mountains along the Pacific Coast Highway and paint the spectacular views!!

  52. Newport Oregon. My favorite place on earth (so far). Right on the ocean. I love to visit there every year. 🤗💜

  53. The Italian coastline, or Southern France, or Greece, or England. There are fun things to paint everywhere, I suppose.

  54. I have not done much travelling outside of Canada but my dream is to go backpacking with my daughter through England, Ireland and Scotland in a couple of years. I would love to capture through my eyes the land as it is, people that live there and the history of time gone by. Thank you for this opportunity Toni.❤️

  55. I’d love to paint some of the rugged coastline of Cornwall where my husband comes from but I’m not experienced enough to get a good representation of all the ocean crashing against the rocks and all the spray ☹️

  56. I would love to paint some of the unique architecture, redwood trees, rocks and stairways in Berkeley, California. Especially as the light is beginning to change to an Autumn light, there is so much that is charming.

    Thank you for your painting demo for the Life Book Taster Sessions (2023).

  57. Oh! The squeaky white sand and turquoise waters surrounding the bushland at Whitehaven Beach 🙂

    Thank you for the “door” tutorial, really opened it up about watercolour and pen.

  59. The place that I would like to visit would be Venice, Italy. I’ve been reading the Magic Tree House to my kid for bedtime story that let’s me visualize and imagine what the places would look like, even though the only place that I’ve ever went to is Hawaii. I would love to draw traveling on a boat, called a gondola, going under the bridge. Wish I can go to a Magic Treehouse and travel to many places! Thank you for a chance to win a spot in lifebook 2023.

  60. I saw a harp player at a renaissance fair and I thought it would make a lovely painting but don’t even know where to begin or if it should be loose or tight or what! I enjoyed your painting process. Thank you!

  61. I think Stone Henge at sunset would be my favorite place to go but for painting I think Venice. The architecture and the gondolas offer so much detail for sketching.

  62. Well that’s a tough one but probably England. The countryside is so beautiful and so is all the old architecture so there would be a lot of options to choose from.

  63. I have a few hundred photos of Walking the Camino in Spain that would be so delightful to paint! So much beauty!!!

  64. I would love to paint the small church I went to that was made in wood and stained glass. It was absolutely beautiful. I could not believe all the work that went into it!

  68. Osaka, Japan streetscape.
    Thanks for the class. I loved the not painted areas. They really make it work!!

  69. I have been to South Australia. I love the old colonial brick houses with wide verandahs, and the old hay barns that are scattered throughout the Adelaide hills. I have photographed some but would love to go back and leisurely paint them. They seem so sad to me, abandoned and crumbling. However, they have character and I found them to be soothing. I do need many more lessons before I can do that!

  70. I would be thrilled if I could draw and paint the canals of Amsterdam. I’ve only visited it once and just loved the old architecture hugging the canals. I actually purchased a couple of watercolors by an artist on the sidewalk there and brought them home to frame and hang on my wall. I just love them. Alas I don’t think I could do the scenery justice but I’d love a chance to visit again and try.

  71. I would love to paint a little village on the Isle of Wight (can’t remember the name!) – I visited more than 20 years ago, but i remeber falling in love with the cute thatched-roof cottages

  72. munot (castle in schaffhausen switz) or rheinfall also in same area!
    beautiful work you do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a spot. Cheers!

  75. Hello hello. Thank you for the opportunity to win a spot. Immediately as I was watching your tutorial, I thought of Parthenon – Greece. In college, I had to do the three columns on 11×14 bristol paper using only micron and form in pointillism, cross-hatch, and another shading method – it was torture for three weeks. But it would be breathtaking to step into Greece and explore the statues, pottery, mosaics, and it all!

  76. Hi Toni,
    I would love to paint my beautiful country, South Africa. We have such beautiful spaces here that I would love to capture, including Table Mountain, Aldo National Park, and our Botanical Gardens have such amazing colours. We also have such diverse cultures in our country, I would love to capture the colourful people and their homes. There are so many places in my own country. Thank you for this opportunity

  77. There’s a beach in Michigan that’s shores are made up of Agate stones. I think that would be a beautiful place to paint. My Dad used to take me there when I was a child.

  78. I recently visited Lennox head and was pretty impressed by all the houses there. All the different lines were very eye catching. Would love to have a go at painting some of them.

  79. I would like to paint the Victorian downtown of my small town, Belfast, ME. It doesn’t have a history as long as places outside of the US, but it’s charming and I love it and the bay at the end of Main St, which is a lovely hill. The town was built in the mid 1800s. Fascinating history and it has turned into a wonderful artsy community!

  80. I would love to paint the historical buildings of the streets of china town in Singapore.
    I love your of horizontal & vertical lines expressions of vignette, very free yet defined.

  81. I went to Japan when I was in high school. I have a lot of photos from there and I think it’s time to get them out and paint them. I’m now 62 so it’s been a very long time ago! Thank you for your lovely lesson. I think you are my favorite artist with lifebook. I enjoy your loose style with watercolor and ink.

  82. Paris!! It took me more than 20 years to get there, but I finally made it and it was even more beautiful than I imagined ❤️

  83. Hi Toni! I would love to capture the quaint artist/fishing village of Provincetown, Massachusetts. It’s close to our summer home and have visited often, but I’ve never experienced it with the quietude of an artist!

  84. There is a special place that we visit often that I would love to paint. A place called Loch Sport in Gippsland Lakes, VIctoria, Australia. It is a beautiful little country town with a lake on one side and a surf beach on the other. There are plenty of beautiful places there to paint. I’d love to get better at painting water/lakes/surf but also botanicals.

  85. I have only been able to travel to Ireland 20 years ago, but I would go back in a heartbeat. I’d love to travel and paint there from the perspective of an artist.

  86. I would love to paint the Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary in Rome! For those who don’t know, this cat sanctuary is located in downtown Rome in the ruins where Julius Caesar was stabbed to death! So, if you love ancient ruins and you love cats, this is the place to be!! We visited there several years ago and I was amazed by all the cats and the great work that the staff do taking care of disabled cats for their whole lives (the cat’s life–not the staff!! LOL!!)

  87. Taiwan is my home country and I would love to paint Jiufen. It’s a very special place with a lot of stairs along with red lamps.

  88. I would love to paint the views on Capri Island in Italy, especially the boat ride to the blue cave

  89. I would love to paint the Smokey mountains and Gatlenburg Tennessee. The mountains and the little city and chair lift. I though it was one of the most beautiful places I have been to. and the bears I saw outside my cabin window, were fabulous.

  90. Reading all these comments is like taking a virtual trip around the world. Well, I love where I live and would like to paint the old Nipawin bridge.

  91. Thanks for the opportunity!
    There’s many beautiful scenic places on the east coast of Canada in my hometown, which I visited, but never painted. This would be awesome! xo

  95. We made a trip to Arches National Park in Utah a few years back, and Mesa Verde in Colorado and I would love to translate my photos into paintings. I wonder why I haven’t? 🙂 Thank you for the chance of a spot in Lifebook!

  96. The only place I have visited overseas so far was to Southern Ireland in my early 20’s. Absolutely beautiful! Wanna go back again and take my husband just to see his reaction. I’m going to have to dig through the old pics and see if I can find one suitable for the Memories lesson. So excited to give it a try.

  97. The trestle bridge in Cloudcroft NM. It’s a simple enough shape that I think my limited drawing skills could still do it justice and then adding the color would bring it to life!

  98. My husband and I were lucky enough to visit Myanmar a few years ago. I would love to paint some of the temples we saw in Bagan. I would love to win a spot on the course. Thanks Toni.

  99. I live in Colorado and would love to learn how to capture the beauty of the aspens in the fall … what an amazing talent you have!! Thanks so much for sharing with us.

  100. Would love to paint the natural beauty of Jackson Hole Wyoming, some of the spots in Yellowstone, Grand Teton Park and of course all those magnificent mountains!

  101. I took a National Parks trip with my oldest daughter in June and it was amazing! We had a fantastic view of the Tetons in Wyoming from our campsite and I would paint the morning sun on the Tetons! I think I would continue with the Black Hills which are stunning and I would like to try to capture the native prairie grasslands we saw in North Dakota. The native grasslands in our country have only little patches of original growth still intact and they are beautiful!

  102. Hi Toni! From my childhood in Cuba I fondly remember the country homes (shacks) with their palm frond roofs… would love to paint one of those 🙂 Thank you for being such an inspiration and for this opportunity to win.

  103. Thank you for the opportunity. Love to learn painting – ink line and watercolour – flowers, leaves and portraits.

  118. Thankyou for this opportunity.
    I would love to paint a scene in the Lake District in the UK. I haven’t lived there but have visited many times and for some reason it’s my favourite place. I feel at home there. I love the fells and the lakes -somewhere by Lake Windemere or Castlerigg Stone circle. Its magical there. I do also like urban scenes -cranes and machinery make interesting subjects too…..

  119. I really love your lessons and always do them. They are such a pleasure and really add a different element to my journals. I would like to draw probably more of Paris where I stayed when I was having rests from cancer treatment. Thank you again. x

  126. Wow!! Lots of comments for you to trawl through, popular lady! After a recent trip to Italy I’d HAVE TO go for StMarks Basilica and imagine (!!) the Campanile in St Mark’s Square…. both in one painting. Just the colours on the outside of the Basilica and the little clusters of globes on the roofs they are polishing up to gold. Stunning.

  127. Ive been to Gettysburg Pa and would love to paint street and battle reenactment scenes from there and also many of the area’s we traveled through on our trip there. Would also love to paint ghost towns across the USA.

  132. Hi Toni,
    I have so many photographs I would like to pain, but 2 ideas keep pushing for top spot. One are a series of doors I photographed in France. They have such character and I would like to do a series or 2 or 3 larger formats, with 6 doors each.
    The other one I cannot get out of my head, are a series of photos I took at Uluru. I didn’t expect to feel so spiritual by this place, but I really did. Special places, hidden in the rocks, or a still pond in an enclosed area, surrounded by beautiful trees. Either would be fabulous! And thank you for sharing your special style with us. It’s such fun and enjoyable.

  133. I would love to paint Venice and Burano in this whimsical way. Our visit to this part of our world was such a treat!

  134. Hi Toni,
    I would love to paint the flora and fauna of the Daintree rainforest in far north Queensland. There is such a magical feel to the area.

  135. Hi Toni! I absolutely love your style! The clothesline in the piece here…ahhhhhh! Love it! I would love to create an artwork depicting my Great-Grandparents farmhouse. They lived there well over 60 years and the gravel road they lived on was named after them. Their home was my favorite place to visit as a child and I have a ton of the most incredible memories from being there.

  136. Hi Toni,
    I love to paint some scenic areas 8n Tasmania. There are also some great old buildings to paint also.

  137. Hi Toni, I think I’d like to try and capture some views on the amazing island of Skye. Or else I’d chose the castle I lived in growing up (my dad was the concierge).

  138. Thank you so much Toni for this opportunity. Your lesson was brilliant. I have been amazing places – what would I absolutely love to paint? I have one photograph that I took years ago in Africa that was was primal and original – I would love to paint that (oh I am so far from that one) and my second pick would be one of the places in Yellowstone – such beautiful colours 🙂

  139. I would like to paint the autumn leaves of New Brunswick. I think that is the most beautiful sight I have ever seen.

  140. I would love to draw the home places I’ve visited in various places in the Appalachian mountains. The places tell stories all on their own. I just want to capture a moment of their existence.

  141. Hi Toni,

    I just started taking an ink drawing class, and I’m excited to incorporate your watercolor technique into my drawings. I would love to paint San Francisco: the beautiful old houses, the trolley cars, the harbor, parks, bridges, street scenes, all of it!

  142. I would go around my own town and take photos of the details of old houses and churches with the intention of painting them in your style. I live in Bulacan, Philippines.

  143. I love the old churches in the small towns in the mountains around Puerto Vallarte in Mexico. I’d love to paint them or the ranches or ruins all around Southern Mexico.

  144. I’d love to just be able to paint great scenes from my garden, the city around me, or when I take a day trip. There are so many beautiful things to see and I’ve found I don’t have to travel anywhere exotic to see them.

  145. Toni, thank you so much for this great opportunity. I would love to paint scenes from my travels to Italy, particularly Bellagio. My inspiration would be my favourite cafe, the quaint shops, ancient garden gates as well as the stone walls and steps.

  146. I would love to paint in Amsterdam … the canals, the bikes, the beautiful buildings. I would also love to do some plein air painting in Northern Germany , southern Denmark. The countryside is so amazing! and those thatched roofs!

  147. I would love to paint some of the old streets in Vivier, France that I visited in 2017. The old town was founded in the 5th century.

  148. Many, many years ago I went to Puerto Rico and was amazed at old San Juan and the rainforest. I would love to go back now and capture the beauty on paper.

  149. I lived in Japan for two years when I was 10 years old. My mother sent me to oil painting class then. I would love to go back to Japan and paint castles, cherry blossoms, and shrines as an adult with the skills and eyes I have now, those of an old women 🙂

  150. I am a novice sketcher in public. I think I would like to return to the West Coast of Vancouver Island and try to capture some of the beauty and rawness of that coast. I adore the Toni style of Urban Sketching, and who knows, I may end up sketching an urban scene surrounded by people.

  151. I would like to return to Ireland and paint the countryside. It is so green. The rock walls, farms, animals, and small towns would be wonderful to paint.

  152. I fell in love with architecture very young and dreamed of castles and palaces – designing, building, owning, or even just staying in them. I sadly walked away from architectural design courses to meet other responsibilities, but I have never lost the awe. But now, at 58, my eye is more pleased by the simple, well worn, inviting places. The quiet thatched roof house with an English garden, the whitewashed hills of Greece, even the fish smoke houses in Norway won my heart for their untold stories. All of Paris begs to be painted, or the riverside streets in Dublin.
    The Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland would be grand.
    But I think the little shops, anywhere in Italy – tiny spaces in ancient buildings, crammed so full of their specialties that they are spilling out into the streets to make room for just a few people to get inside. Flowers bursting out of one, fresh produce from the next, and then another with only pasta – every kind you could possibly imagine and then some more – hanging around the open doors and big woven baskets trying to capture the tide of colorful packages.
    I think I will fill a book with all of them ♥

  153. I actually love to sketch old cemeteries and – the old gravestones and other monuments are works of art. And many of the plants and trees there are heirloom varieties or old established mature trees. Happy halloween and thanks for the opportunity to win a spot Toni!

  154. I’m not a world traveler, so the nicest place I would love to paint since I wish I could be there is Key West. I loved the sunsets there at Mallory Square, the characters that performed there. There’s beautiful vintage houses and old outside open bars that would be lovely to paint.

  155. Greece. It’s been many years since I’ve been there but it was the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.

  156. Toni I love your drawing style and the lightness of your watercolor but strength of the colors. I would love to paint Avignon at night under the bridgeby the old youth hostel if it still exists. That is a wonderful memory for me of hitching all over Europe in my twenties. I’m 74 now and started my young career as an artist over again too. The other place I”d like to paint is in upstate NY called Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz NY. Great memories there too in that pictuesque place. You must make a journey there one day
    thank you. I’d love to take classes with you in2023

  157. I had the privilege of serving on a mission team at the salmon run in Alaska. The large nets, fish, and hearts of the people were bigger than life. I would love to sketch a scene to be a reminder.

  158. Hi Toni
    I know it’s been done heaps of times before but not in your style & I reckon the beach shacks at Mothers Beach in Mount Martha Victoria Australia would look fabulous. Thanks 🤗

  159. I live in Far North Queensland and would love to paint and draw some old buildings around the area, especially Parronella park, which isn’t too far away. There are many interesting buildings in Qld from the pioneering days and beyond when the architecture blends the different cultures that built this area.
    Really looking forward to your lesson during this taster week and in LB23

  169. I would love to paint anywhere in Hangzhou, China That is where my daughter is from and we went there in 2002 to adopt her.

We are both artists but our style is REALLY different and I kind of love that.

  170. I live in Toronto Canada a bed we have a castle that is in the middle of our downtown core. When I was a child I was fascinated by this castle and looked forward to Christmas when we got to go inside for tours. I would love to paint Casa Loma it was such a piece of my childhood.

  171. The island of Molokai. I can still remember the unique foliage, especially the trees with roots visible above the ground. The backdrop of the lush greenery and the wide expanse of sea and clear sky was so dramatic.

  172. I love the ocean and going to the beach. So I’d love to paint Navarre Beach in Florida. White sand and emerald green, crystal clear waters.😎😎😎

  173. Long ago I was in the Alps in Austria. Would love to be able to paint the magnificence….but fear that just like being there, it would not even look real!

  174. I went to Deadwood, South Dakota once and it would be fun to try to paint a western town like that. The Bullocks Hotel was beautiful.

  175. Savannah, Georgia (USA) is full of history with beautiful buildings, streets, and squares. The trees have hanging moss and a beautiful waterfront with cobblestone street near the waterfront. It is also a major shipping port. Then there are the marsh areas. Beautiful place to sketch and paint. Check out these images:;_ylt=AwrhdeLBmzNjjRMStxtXNyoA;_ylu=Y29sbwNiZjEEcG9zAzEEdnRpZAMEc2VjA3BpdnM-?p=savannah+historic+homes&fr2=piv-web&fr=yfp-t-s

  191. I’d love to paint the buildings in my town in central western NSW. It has many old colonial buildings and is very whimsical. I love your style of loose and free expressive painting. I think it would suit the old buildings here. There are a million places in the world to visit and paint, but sometimes what is right in front of our noses is just as beautiful!

  192. I want to paint my neighborhood in New Orleans. I’m going to start with my old creole cottage. Thanks for the lovely lesson and for the inspiration!

    Thanks for the chance

  202. My favorite place in the world is back home in Oregon. Camp Sherman on the Metolius river near Bend, Oregon. If you ever get the chance to go you will not be disappointed. The water comes up from a natural spring and is so cold and clear. The trees and scenery are amazing. I haven’t been there in almost 30 yrs. We used to go several times a year when I was growing up. Definitely need to make a trip home.

  203. The Oregon Coast during a good storm was an amazing sight. Id love to go back with a good paint set and catch some of the more beautiful scenery with my notebooks.

  204. Hello to Toni and to all of you wonderful artists. I lost my Mom a few months ago. We were so close and we painted and created together all the time. I am flattened by what she suffered and going through some health scares of my own. The positive environment and inspiration of LifeBook could be just what I need to reconnect to my creativity. Thanks for the beautiful lesson and here’s hoping for good things to come.

  205. Little Pigeon River in Gatlinburg, TN – where I was married! I haven’t been anywhere else really. This was such a beautiful spot back then. Thank you for your lesson and the chance to win a spot on Lifebook23!

  210. Hi Toni, I have been lucky enough to have been to some amazing places and thinking back there are a few I would now love to paint… Canyon Lake in Oregon – it is just so blue…. The beautiful colours of the Grand Canyon at sunset, a winding path by a lake in New Zealand… but my favourite would probably be scenes from Finestrat, a village in Spain. My late Mother lived there for many years and it was beautiful, especially the part just above the village where the delicious spring water comes pouring out of the rock. I have so many happy memories of climbing that hill to collect water.
    Thanks for the chance of winning a spot and good luck to everyone.

  211. My niece took me on a cruise in 2012 to the Bahamas. We went to St. John’s Island and I would LOVE to be able to paint the little cafe we ate at—where iguanas were walking around searching for some little morsel that may have fallen from someone’s table!
    I truly enjoyed watching you paint that beautiful door!

  212. Hi Toni
    I live in Maine and Bar Harbor has some amazing places to paint. Ocean views, hidden beauty, stone bridges. One stone bridge always takes my breath away.

    Warm wishes
    Michelle C

    Thanks for this opportunity, Toni.

  222. I lived in San Francisco for a while but my place was so small I did very little journaling – no room for art supplies. Almost no room for me. I would love to paint the Golden Gate Bridge.

  225. Although I’ve never been to Italy, I’d love to paint the yellow houses with red roofs with the tall, thin trees included too. I guess the only place(s) in the UK which have anything similar are the yellow stone cottages in Gloucestershire and Yorkshire, so they’d have to be my inspiration instead!

  226. The amazing Kimberley, in Western Australia. The colours and contrast, the open space, the beauty of untouched parts of nature.

  227. I’d love to learn how to paint one of the fishing villages in Cinque Terre..

The Bitter End in the Virgin Islands a treasure that sadly got destroyed by the hurricane so they had to rebuild.

I’d love to paint sparkling clear shades of turquoise water of the Pang Gong lake surrounded by a stark contrast of very grounding mountains in every shade of brown.

  255. I went to Maui when I was in my early 20’s. I’m turning 41 in November so it’s been a while lol there was a cute little beach that was off the road. Literally we pulled over and parked on the side of the road and walked toward some trees. It was really small and trees were in back of us. It was cute. I have a few pictures. I actually had a film camera at the time so when I got back I had the film developed. I think there was at least 5 or 6 rolls lol. One of the pictures turned out so good. I don’t even remember taking it. At the bottom of the photo is a pair of one of our flip flops and it has the trees on one side with it arching over the top of the picture and then you have the beach with dark sand. The water curling up on the beach. So crisp and clear. One of my favorite photos and such a great memory! That would be an awesome place to sketch ❤️

  256. I would love to paint my own backyard. Would love to win a place. Love your tutorials. .. thanks

  257. My favourite place of all is Lakes Entrance in Victoria Australia. I would love to paint the beach on a stormy day

  259. Venice, Italy and the roads on the way to Rome. I loved the canals and the sunflower fields that we passed. I was only 13, and it was a class thing for my german class, but I remember those very clearly even with my memory being damaged. They’re sites that just stuck with me.

  260. I would love to paint a riverboat at the dock in Chester Illinois. It’s like a park around the area and not a big dock. So beautiful along the Mississippi.

  261. Peru and the Andes or those beautiful towns from the Sierra with the beautiful people with their typical clothing (costumes) so much color, Loved it

  262. I would love to paint some street scenes from Sucre in Bolivia. My son was born in a town not far from there before we returned to Canada. and we visited Sucre when we returned to show my son his birthplace. We were all entranced by the incredible melange of indigenous culture and colonial Spanish architecture. It would be wonderful to capture that feeling in a painting.
