During the months of December and January I run sketching day-trips on the beautiful tropical island of Langkawi, off the NW coast of the Malaysian peninsular.
Close to the Thai border (which is reachable by a short boat ride) it offers stunning limestone scenery: High mountains coated in jungle; hidden waterfalls, glorious white sand beaches and hundreds of uninhabited islands floating in a turquoise sea. Langkawi is very accessible with both sea and air connections and is ideal for your sketching/painting holiday in Malaysia.
If you are going to be on the island during these months you can pre-book your sketching day-trip and pay on the day.
Visiting two different and equally inspiring locations and suitable for all abilities the cost will be:
- 1 person 225 MYR (approx. £45)
- 2 people 125 MYR (approx. £25) each
- 3 or 4 people 100 MYR (approx. £20) each
Price includes transport, tuition/guidance as needed and all your materials to use for the day.
I believe that the Sketchbook Journeys encompass some of the best scenery that these places have to offer. But with some of the countries so vast, a short trip can only scratch the surface and leave many treasures waiting to be discovered.
If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for here or would like to tweak one of the trips slightly, perhaps in terms of departure point or length, then get in touch and I will do my best to accommodate your wishes. Similarly if you are a group of 4 or more people I can tailor a holiday to suit you.
In the first instance, get in touch by e-mail and share your thoughts… who knows what we can devise!
Would you like to help in the development of a new programme? Do you like the idea of travelling and sketching in a new place without knowing exactly what to expect?
Go into the unknown with a spirit of adventure! Come with me as I research new destinations.
What are the advantages?
I do a lot of the initial research: I will choose location, identify the most suitable accommodation and ideal painting spots, and the logistics of how to get there.
I will provide guidance, encouragement and tuition as required as on a regular sketching holiday but FREE OF CHARGE: I require only that my expenses be covered.
You may bring your own art materials, or I will provide them at cost
You get a say in what and where we paint, helping me to identify the best places for a new Sketching Journey or Break… enjoy seeing our ideas come to fruition!
Have fun exploring with a like-minded small group.
Bring non-painting friends and partners; you organise your own accommodation and travel.
Exploratory trips are planned to the following destinations:
- Greek Island Hopping, Symi and Santorini (3 trips)
- The Azores
- La Gomera
If you think you might like to join me to any of the above destinations please get in touch to register your interest and I will give you an estimated cost.
