Bhutan

In November of last year, I spent a couple of weeks traveling in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.

I didn’t get as much time to paint, as I’d like because to travel in Bhutan, you pretty much have to be with a guide and so I had to stick to the schedule of the tour I was on. There were a couple of times I stayed behind and did some sketching, though.

This was at a nunnery that we hiked to. It was at about 10,000 ft elevation and I found it challenging to keep my breath hiking up there.

This was one that I left the group to do. It was a beautiful day and many other hikers stopped to visit while I painted. I think meeting locals and fellow travelers is my favorite thing about trips like this.
