Norway 2020

Reflections for our trip before we go!

Our 100 day countdown to our holiday has started! I am really looking forward to Bergen, our first stop! Apparently, it is also called the city of the seven mountains, so I look forward to seeing them as the backdrop to our art sessions. Bergen also sits on a dramatic coastline and is the gateway for us to visit the fjords. The medieval wharf of Bryggen, with its around 60 historic buildings in succession, is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Bergen has a bustling art scene of museums and galleries and is starting to get a reputation for its vivid art scene.! I forgot to say, Bergen is one of Europe’s rainiest places, so I hope everyone remembers to pack an umbrella ready to embrace the life as an urban sketcher!

Brygge(n) (or wharf in English). Important part of the Hanseatic League.

If you have missed the boat (pun intended!) on our Norwegian painting holiday, get in touch for information on the painting adventures planned for the rest of 2020 and 2021.
