For over 20 years, Eleanor White has been an invited painting tutor with Rufus Reade Tours. During this time, many groups have painted in beautiful and exciting locations around the world. Ethiopia will be one not to be missed and this posting is an early invitation to register your interest in the tour.

The aim is to travel slowly to witness the land being tilled, the crops brought in and the daily round of life as well as the rock-hewn churches of Lalebela and the ancient obelisks of Axum. After some time in the north of the country, we plan to visit the eastern walled city of Harar and the Awash National Park, before ending the holiday with a few glorious nights in an idyllic set of comfortable huts set inside the jungle.

The pace will allow for good lengths of time to draw and paint at most sites with full tuition from Eleanor. Where facilities permit, each day will also feature a short talk by Eleanor on ways of seeing; these talks are designed to inspire your artwork.

The holiday is suitable for both painters and non-painters alike. The tour will be launched in November 2016. If you would like an early intimation of the itinerary, the cost and dates, please contact Rufus Reade: rufusreade@blueyonder.co.uk
