Artist Roger Dellar is leading this new Art Safari itinerary to the historical coastal town of Chania in Crete, with its beautiful 14th Century Venetian Harbour.
Roger will tutor in oils for this Cretan Art Safari, with demos and tutorials looking at perspective, light, shadow and reflections. This is a place Roger knows and loves and he will share his favourite painting spots in the narrow streets, squares and bustling market places, and on the harbourside.
We spend a day in the nearby foothills of the White Mountains, with long undulating views and ancient olive trees as our inspiration at Manousakis Winery. Tasting some organic wines with a delicious mezze lunch.
The early September temperatures should be pleasant for painting and relaxing in Crete. Our base is a friendly, comfortable hotel in Chania old town and we will walk to nearby painting locations.
