Thailand Painting Holidays

paint on the banks of the Mekong River

A wonderful combination of painting tuition and Thai culture in a small guest house on the banks of the Mekong River at Phon Phisai in NE Thailand.  During the dry cool months of October to January each year the guesthouse provides a combination of painting tuition and Thai rural culture experience to 4 guests each week.

The visits are individually tailored to provide the level of tuition and Thai experience that each visitor seeks.  This website contains details of the tuition, experiences and facilities together with prices and booking facilities. 

 

Water Buffalo

Mind the photographer dear

I love water buffalo.  They are such heavy looking lumbering animals and yet when you follow their trails in the woodlands they are very narrow as the buffalo tread very carefully.  The cowherds take the buffalo from the village every day to graze on common land.  On the way back the animals love to go for a dip in the river where they wallow until the cowherd wants them out.  Any recalcitrant animal is encourage to come out of the water by a quick ping with a stone from the catapult that the cowherds carry to control their beasts.

You are sure to see the buffalo during your photography and painting holiday to discover Thailand.
