BEST TIME TO GO ON A PAINTING HOLIDAY
Light and shade add depth and scope to a painter’s palette, so spring and autumn are the best seasons to expand your artistic horizons.
Although parched summers in southern Europe and Morocco can dry paint as soon as it touches the canvas, you can still enjoy a painting vacation beneath the canopy of sun-dappled orchards or a well-placed beach parasol. In Scotland’s Inner and Outer Hebrides, meanwhile, painting cruises depart when the weather warms up during July and August. In the main, the best time to go on a painting vacation is in spring or autumn. This is when rural regions come to life with spring flowers, or industrious harvesters, to provide a wider range of subject matter. In sun-soaked Cyprus, winter creates incredible, energetic scenes with wild and windswept waves and white horses.
