From the dunes and the seaside to the Dutch mountains end ending in the peat-moor swamp, this tour will lead you through some of the Dutch landscapes. Zooming in on nature values as well as ecology and farming, there is still time left for art and history when we visit the Kröller-Müller museum (Van Gogh/modern art/sculptures) and one of the oldest cities in The Netherlands Deventer. Deventer also is one of the best kept and restored cities in The Netherlands but not yet discovered by mass-tourism. On our way back we go through the world famous Dutch polders.

The Netherlands…we do have a nice collection of famous painters here. Rembrandt, van Gogh, Vermeer being the most famous ones, but there are many, many more. Personally I like van Gogh very much because of the emotion in his work but I am very fond as well of a modern artist like Henk Helmantel (see the picture below). And I like painting myself….so why not combine it in a tour? And why not paint by our selves? Sure, why not!

This 4 day roundtrip is built in a daily similar  set up: In the morning we visit a museum of high standard and after lunch, filled with inspiration and Dutch cheese, we go for it ourselves. And if the weather forecast is bad for the afternoon we turn it around or paint at a sheltered place. We will be working on Canvas panels that you can easily put in your suit case to bring back home (or I will send them afterwards) and with acrylics. Admittance fees and material up to 4 boards is included in the price; extra boards or the wish to use oil-paint on request. Painting locations variable and as such not listed.

Included: guiding services, mileage and fuel, lunches, hotel half board, admittance fees, overhead costs, paints, acrylic paint, 4 boards, painter’s easel
Excluded: evening diners, souvenirs and personal expenses

Itinerary:
Day 1: Pick-up and a visit to Rembrandt’s house, where he lived and worked.
Day 2: Visit to museum Kröller-Müller near Arnheim. This museum, started from a private collection, has modern art as the basic art form. It has a very big collection of Van Gogh’s next to Picasso, Renoir, Mondriaan and many others and also a garden with statues.
Day 3: Visit to museum “De Fundatie” in the city of Zwolle. The museum has the mission “to exhibit the finest expressions of the human spirit from all times and by all peoples” ; art from all ages and inspiration from different angles guaranteed.
