Traveling with a group of artists is different than taking a typical tour. We move at a more leisurely pace as we paint, photograph and absorb everything around us. We seek out the culture, the art, the history, the architecture & the people that make a place special. Everything is planned by our tour operators and they are with us to ensure that everything runs smoothly making a carefree vacation for us.
I encourage my students to create with ink and watercolors in Watercolor Journals and to write their experiences thus creating illustrated journals of their trips
All Mediums: Students are welcome to work in any medium of their choice and I will be there to help each of you individually. At home I paint in oils and acrylics in addition to watercolors, but I choose to demonstrate and paint in watercolors when I travel because I just like “traveling light”.
Beginners are welcome on my Painting Trips.
Tour Operators: I use professional “small group” owner operator tour companies that are experienced in painting trips. I know I would not like to be on a tour with 25 to 50 people herded on and off busses, so I do not work for big companies that run those types of tours. However, due to the limited number of spaces available on these trips, you need to send your deposit in as soon as possible. The tour company website listed with each tour explains all the terms and conditions and tells you how to pay your deposit and reserve your space.
Flights: Flights are not included in the cost of my painting trips so you can use frequent flyer miles, or meet up with our tour after already traveling elsewhere in Europe. Please do not book your flights until you are advised that the tour is filled and is a “go”.
References: I would be happy to give you the names and email addresses of students that have traveled on previous painting trips with me.
Non-Painters are welcome on my painting trips.
