Morocco


This holiday, which is for the more adventurous painter, is packed with thrilling images of the kaleidoscopic Moroccan landscape. You'll see wide, lunar expanses; rich, jade-green valleys; and the massive, drifting Erg Chebbi dunes - so don't be surprised to find sand in your luggage on your arrival home!

Our base - the Nomad Palace - is right on the edge of the desert, east of the High Atlas mountains. It offers rooms with private toilets and showers, and delicious, home-cooked Moroccan cuisine which is served in the Salon and its exotic lounge area. There is now also a swimming pool for a refreshing dip after painting.

On Erg Chebbi

Situated in the nearby village of Merzouga is a stopping place for Berber caravans where we can paint camels or locals in colourful robes in a shady Palmerie. And with the expert guidance of our multi-lingual host Ali, we will visit a wonderful museum in an old Kasbah and Nomads in their dessert dwellings.

Your stay includes a day in the astonishing Dades gorge, at the bottom of which the Dades river runs and almond trees blossom in the spring. There are delightful shady corners here, many ruined citadels - and some utterly amazing rock formations!

You will also have the opportunity of a portrait session with Berber (Bedouin) nomads in traditional dress, and an evening trip deeper into the desert to marvel at the landscape or to do some quick sketching.

To paint these stunning landscapes and hardy desert people, to wander through kasbahs and to sketch market places is ... a truly unique experience.
