We are offering a trip to Morocco – 18th – 28th November 2017
Want to explore the colour and spice of Morocco?
We are offering a ten day trip in November.
Paint, draw and sketch in these two contrasting cities. Firstly experience the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. A colourful, exciting city full of people creating and selling their goods. We stay in the Medina the old city, in a beautiful Riad close to the main square. The city is full of bright light and colour a feast for your eyes and has an excess of inspiration, so much to paint. It isn’t any quieter in the evening as the main square comes alive with food stalls, musicians and street sellers.
The second half of our trip is at the coast, we transfer to Essaouira a wonderful fishing port and boat building harbour. We stay in the Medina, a fortified wall surrounds the old city and protects the main areas from the harsh sea. It is a quieter, a more tranquil place to draw and paint. At the harbourmost people are only interesting going about their work, preparing the fish, loading and unloading the fish and selling and buying the fish. The boats are busily entering and leaving the harbour it’s anactive and bustling place, full of character. Lots to Sketch and paint. Plenty of interesting cafes and squares to sit and sketch. It’s a painters paradise.
