Marrakech and Essaouira 18th Nov – 28th Nov
We begin the trip in the exciting city of Marrakech, staying in a Riad hotel in the heart of the city close to the main Square. This is located in the Medina, the walled centre of the city. You can soak up the colors, the costume, the amazing food and dramatic architecture. We visit the world famous Majorelle Gardens owned by Yves St Laurent they are a refreshing oasis, amazing colours in this busy city.
We split the trip between two contrasting cities, after five days in the busy city of Marrakech we head to the coast to Essaouira, fresh and cool, much less busy and more relaxed. This is a working port and ship building harbour it is a hive of activity and has always been an exciting place to paint. We really enjoy the contrast of the two cities.
We fly into Marrakech, it’s only two and a half hours from London, the airport is close to the city and the taxi only takes fifteen minutes to the hotel. We have stayed in several different Riad hotels all of which have been really comfortable, and hospitable. We like to stay near the main aquarium as every evening it comes alive with food stall, music, storytellers and dancers, you name it it’s there.
We like to sit in the local markets and cafes sketching and drawing the busy street life. We find interesting buildings, dramatic architecture and fabulous colour. Carpets, clothing, metalwork, bric-a-bracelet, leather goods, and food. After lunch and a rest we take to the roof terrrace to develop our sketches into paintings.
Each evening we choose a different restaurant to enjoy the local dishes. Wonderful flavours, delicious spices and exotic combinations.
