I have found this a great way to see other countries,enjoy their cultures and also paint at the same time.
For me as a beginner just not enough time really to take in the beautiful Greek architecture ,draw it and paint it 'plein air' in situ!
I did feel however that I had learnt a lot , that i liked it, and would try to paint with watercolours when the time was right , once back home. This I have done.
