Day 1, Afternoon – Toledo, Spain: Andalusia Art Trek
12″ x 9″ oil painting by Niki Gulley
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop Led by Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
After lunch on the first day of our Spain Art Trek, we gave everyone free time to explore the city. Some visited the Cathedral, some toured the el Greco art museum, others shopped and some painted.
I set up my easel in this peaceful garden shaded by these massive trees and painted the colorful architecture in the distance and the beautiful dappled light raking across the scene. That evening we dined on a gourmet tapas meal of scallops wrapped in bacon with lobster sauce, duck and strawberry salad, beef tenderloin with grilled asparagus, smoked octopus and assorted desserts. Delicious and a perfect ending to a fun-filled day!
Dinner in Toledo
Next summer we will be leading three different Art Treks to Tuscany, England and Ireland. So if you’ve always dreamed of painting, photographing and sightseeing in Europe, please join us for one of these amazing trips! See details at ArtTreks.org.
