Nepal is a magnificent country south of the majestic Himalayas and the great Annapurna mountain range. It is a land filled with rich culture and ancient history. I have been travelling to this region of the world for many years. It is one of the most spectacular places on earth with some of the most charming and delightful people I have ever met. The scenic views are breath taking. At some places, views are filled from top to bottom, starting with the Himalayan peaks shining out through the clouds all the way down to deep terraced valleys far below where you are standing as the viewer...it really is out of this world and something you need to experience to capture this beauty in your mind and heart.
I am taking an art tour to Nepal with Jill Persson, an expert Himalayan tour guide for the last 25 years. We will share our art and travel expertise and this awesome land with both fellow artists and hobby artists with a love for the outdoor art experience! You can sketch along the way and paint at some of the incredible resorts we stay in. The views in some of these lodges are spectacular, as shown in the photos. You will be using various art mediums to translate life, people, faces, animals, land, trees, flowers, wooden carved windows, ancient buildings (all your own choice of what you wish to translate) into both sketch books and onto canvas boards. You will create a wonderful visual art diary of your holiday, capturing special moments along the way. You will also be touring around and seeing the magnificent sites of Kathmandu and the surrounding areas, including the ancient city of Bhaktapur. There will be a lovely balance of art and holiday. Even a partner or friend wanting to join the trip but not interested in art, will still be kept occupied by the wonders of Nepal as we experience it together. Us artists will experience Nepal through our pencils and paint box, others will experience it in their own unique way!
There will be an optional extra at the end of the tour to add on a trip to the game reserve where we will ride elephants in search of tigers, Asian leopards, armour-plated rhinos and deer. We will see beautiful birds, gorgeous rivers, wonderful forests, jungle areas...and so much more.
This holiday will be an amazing experience for anyone who would love to climb out of the box and do something different. We stay in lovely places along the way, the food is very good and the people are friendly, kind and intriguing.
