LAKE OHRID – MACEDONIA
The magical Ohrid Lake will be our base on this fabulous painting week.
Our focus will be on plein air painting. Experience the challenges of painting outdoors and get tips on how to adapt to difficult conditions, such as too much sun and heat and the changing light. You’ll have the opportunity to practise drawing and painting the many architectural subjects on offer. You can also learn how to achieve beautiful and simple water reflections, how to simplify a busy scene of the lakeside. Or you may prefer painting a tranquil rocky shore away from the crowds. Help will be available at all times. All levels welcome! Paint in your preferred medium.
This painting week includes a visit to a desolate mountain villages where we sample some local cuisine in a traditional home and enjoy the views from the top of the Galicica Mountains. At St Naum, we move down the tranquil Springs on our private boat and sketch around the greeny blue waters as well as around the imposing monastery. Here we’ll be surrounded by curious, feathered spectators, the resident peacocks.
