Painting Holiday in the Algarve, Portugal - October 2017
We will be painting in two nearby areas in Southern China.
Yangshuo. We will base ourselves at the beautiful Yangshuo Mountain Retreat which is located within a designated scenic area on the banks of the Yulong River, with steep limestone karst towers behind and emerald rice fields in front. We will paint the stunning scenery, take a bamboo raft ride down the river, watch the world famous 'Impression' Light Show at night on the banks of the river Li, learn Chines painting from a local artist, and visit a fan factory.
Ping'an. High in the mountains and surrounded by terraced rice paddies, the village of Ping'an is made of wooden houses. It is about 3 hrs from Yangshuo. There are no cars or even roads as such, and the village is connected by small lanes and many steps. We will stay in one of the hotels there and paint the village and the rice terraces.
Tuesday October 10th to Friday October 20th 2017
This is the best time of the year for visiting this area of China. The weather should be warm and dry.
