Come Paint With In The Himalayas?
Join me for an unforgettable painting workshop to India, Fall 2016, non-painting partners welcome.
INDIA is a painter's dream. The sights and colors will not only challenge and charm your brush but take your breath away. From ancient temples, historic interiors and mountain ranges to working craftsmen and sari clad beauties, you will paint it all with me in this workshop in a way perhaps you have never done before and never will again on a painting trip.
This once in a lifetime workshop will focus on quick sketches 'out and about' of the local sights and people and even some interiors of the wonderfully historical places we will be staying. You will return home with a perfect painted record/journal of your trip from which you can then make larger paintings at home. All mediums welcome. The images below are a sample of quick sketch I painted on the streets during my recent trip to India. On enrollment a supply list will be provided to you with suggestions on packing light for painting. I thank Yasin at Indus Tours in the U.K. for coming up with this amazing itineray, prompted by my last trip. We are staying in some breath-taking historical places. Join me for an incredible painting/life experience full of the sights, sounds and, oh, yes, those colors of India?
