Those who are not familiar with watercolor, learn the basic techniques of this technique, through which they can write sketches from nature and express their emotions from the perception of the surrounding world.
Experienced artists will get acquainted with the author's methods of conveying the atmosphere, texture and materiality of the landscape, ways of creating an image of the landscape.
Paul will give individual advice and help in the work.
Everyone will find for themselves something interesting, important and necessary.
The level of preparation does not matter, since an individual approach to each participant is guaranteed.
The tour is designed for both professional artists and beginners from scratch.
The main thing is the desire to plunge into the atmosphere of plein air painting.

When working in the open-air there are certain features that we will consider in the class and consolidate them practically.
The state of nature is constantly changing and this makes the artist work differently than in the workshop.
You will learn how to choose the plot and determine the main tasks that you must perform in the first minutes of work.
We will consider color themes, air and linear perspective, materiality of textures and landscapes, as well as various methods of writing.

What else do you need to know about the tour AQUARELLE-1: Ladakh?
And you need to know the following:
Ladakh is a very creative place - high mountains, powerful mountain chains, just breathe energy.
Here it is very clean:
here the crystal air, the air that has the smell of grass and glacial snow,
here is pure water that has a taste - for everyone this taste will seem its own, but it will really be fresh and tasty water.
There are a lot of fruits and vegetables here), also fresh, tasty and without fertilizers.
It is easy to fall asleep from the saturation of the day and sleeps deeply at night, sometimes dreaming colored dreams with hints of local color.
Here is a very friendly culture of living Tibetan Buddhism, a culture in which aggression is completely absent.
And most importantly, Ladakh is a very emotionally clean place.
And this means that there is an opportunity to emotionally unload, energize and immerse yourself in creativity.

Valley of the Indus River. Tour for artists in Tibet: Watercolor-1: Watercolor painting in Ladakh with Pavel Pugachev, 04.08. - 16.08. 2018

Through these mountain landscapes we will move to the Buddhist monastic complex of Basgo Gonpa.
This is where our second open air will be held.

Buddhist Monastery Basgo, Basgo Gompa - built in 1680 by the rulers of the Buddhist dynasty Namgyal.
The village of Basgo itself was known from antiquity and is mentioned in the Ladakh Chronicles as a political and cultural center and the former capital of Lower Ladakh.
The monastery is famous for its unique frescoes of the 16th century and the Buddha statue.
Basgo Gompa stands on steep rocks, no, probably more correctly this way:
Basgo Gonpa - as grown up, hovered in Space and Time on the tops of steep cliffs that really are part of its basement and literally soars in the air over the village of Basgo.
In Ladakh, in general, a very peculiar relationship with Time and Space - for example, many of our tourists say that it was not the 2 weeks of the tour that went by, it felt like a lifetime), and the route of our plein airs goes exactly to places where it is felt especially strongly.

The Basco Monastery. Tour for artists in Tibet: Watercolor-1: Watercolor painting in Ladakh with Pavel Pugachev, 04.08. - 16.08. 2018

The views in the territory of the Basgo Gonpa Reserve park are simply incredible - another word and not found:
the quaint shape of the cliffs are mixed with the buildings of the monastery, and are connected not by paths, but by steep mountain paths.
And in the middle of this nature-rugged landscape - in the hollows of colorful lakes.

The Basco Monastery. Tour for artists in Tibet: Watercolor-1: Watercolor painting in Ladakh with Pavel Pugachev, 04.08. - 16.08. 2018

It's infinitely beautiful: probably, Basgo Gonpa is still the most unusual Buddhist monastery in Ladakh.
Located Basgo Gonpa in the steep bard rock, the very territory of the monastery - is a completely incredible landscapes.
You can wander around indefinitely.
What we will do is scatter along the territory in accessible visibility and our second plaque in Ladakh.

By the way, there are also a lot of valery landscapes here:

Towards evening we leave for the village of Lamayuru.
Guest house at the monastery of Lamayuru Gonpa.

Day 4, August 7: Lamayuru. Lamayuru Gonpa. The village of Vanla, 50 km, height 2800 - 3 000 m.
We wake up in a completely amazing place - in the mountain Bonov village of Lamayuru.
A wonderful delicious breakfast in a restaurant near Tashi, it's the owner of the guest house - the most charming person who created in Lamayuru the maximum possible in these places a cosiness for tourists.
Let's talk a little about the monastery of Lamayuru Gonpa and about the places we ended up in.

 The Buddhist monastery of Lamayuru Gonpa (Jungdrun is the sign of the swastika) is one of the oldest monasteries of Ladakh, its construction is attributed to Rinchen Sanpo (958-1055).
The monastery was founded in the XI century by the famous Teacher Naropa, after spending several years in meditation in the cave.

Bon Monastery Lamayuru Gonpa. Tour for artists in Tibet: Watercolor-1: Watercolor painting in Ladakh with Pavel Pugachev, 04.08. - 16.08. 2018

The monastery got its name from the plantation of sacred grain, which mysteriously took the form of a swastika (a swastika with a left-hand movement symbolizes Jungdrun Bon or a new Bon).
Now the Monastery of Lamayuru refers to the direction of the Buddhist school of Drikung Kagyu, but for a long time it was a refuge for the followers of the Bon religion.

Bon Monastery Lamayuru Gonpa. Tour for artists in Tibet: Watercolor-1: Watercolor painting in Ladakh with Pavel Pugachev, 04.08. - 16.08. 2018

The places here are amazing, the monastery of Lamayuru Gonpa itself is built in high forest sediments, the buildings of the monastery seem to be a continuation of the mountains and do not conflict with the environment at all.

But we will come back to Lamayuru later, and for now we have a trip to the ancient Aryan village of Vanla, a unique place from any point of view:
- Firstly, even in Ladakh there are very few Aryan villages (these are the true Aryans where Hitler sent expeditions for Aryan blood)
- Secondly, it is here that the unique Vanla Gonpa, whose wall paintings are attributed to the 10th century AD - bright Kashmiri Buddhism,
- Thirdly, this, fortunately, is absolutely not a tourist place, and here again we will face the phenomenon of loss of the sense of Time.

Some photos from Vanla.
This is Vanla Gonpa herself, a small ancient monastery on top of a rock mountain:

Our third plein air will be held here.

For lunch, we return to the village of Lamayuru.

After lunch - a walk around the monastery Lamayuru Gonpa and our fourth plein air in the equally interesting village of Lamayuru -
all the buildings, as already mentioned, are built and for centuries stand among loess idols, as if they themselves are a natural element of the surrounding mountainous terrain:

Day 5, August 8: Lamayuru. Moon Earth, about 20 km, height 2,800 - 3,000 m.
Today we will spend the whole day in the open air of the Moon Earth - unique loess deposits of the valley of Lamayuru - 5 and 6 open-air.

In the morning we will rise to the military road, which runs at high altitude and from where the Moon Land (Moon Earth) is visible from above - there is an incredible number of beautiful landscape points and very diverse:
from the bright yellow rugged landscapes of the Moon Earth:

and individual gorges, where the greenery of the villages fits with the green threads of life into the inaccessibility of the ancient mountains.
The Ladakh mountains are beautiful and naked - they are bare:
there is practically no vegetation and mountain ranges appear in all their multicolored majesty.

The water in the lake is slightly salty. The lake is only available in the summer season.
Until 1959, local residents were engaged in the extraction of salt (czokar, in the local language of Ladakh) from the lake.

Lake Tso Moriri is a beautiful remote quiet place.
In windless weather, Tz Moriri shakes her mirrors:
the world really becomes double, dual and this duality of the surrounding reality is felt literally physically.

And in terms of choice, this will probably be the most difficult day:
Tso Moriri is beautiful in all its manifestations, is beautiful with that high-mountain beauty, from which it is simply breathtaking.
But, depending on the weather and lighting, we will still make one or the other choice and today we will have two open-airs - 10 and 11 - on Lake Tso Moriri.

In the meantime, just photos from the lake to represent - as here, where you are going.
And it is highly recommended to look at the above photo albums from Lake Tso Moriri.

Further we continue our way, but already on the other road - we turn off into the valley of Hot Geysers:
this valley is itself a miracle.
Imagine - the bare, bare mountains and suddenly the landscape changes dramatically:
in front of you - a green, colorful valley - an abundance of greenery, in places on the lakes the steam rises, the earth becomes white, whitish from the stone salts.
On shallow lakes, important are the white herons who are stepping ...

We will stop for a while in the Valley of Geysers - just wander around, take a walk a bit, but there is no open air here - well, it's impossible to embrace the immense), and we have an even more unusual place for the high-altitude salt lake Tso Kar.

Lake Tso-Kar - perhaps the most charming of the lakes of Lesser Tibet.
The epithet "beautiful" - here not absolutely that, Tso-Car is exquisite: soft paints, half-tones, closed miniature, water color of colors of mountains surrounding mountains, calmness-rest.
The word "Tso-Car" literally translates as the White Lake. This lake is named because the salt and all its banks are covered with whitish deposits of salt.
Lake Tso Kar - is located 150 km southeast of Lech in the Rupshu Valley at an altitude of 4700 m.

From the height of Tso Kar looks like this:

Tso Kar is very capricious and very diverse in all its manifestations:
from the weather, which can change here every half hour to landscapes - here and the smooth water with reflecting mirrors, and colorful solonchaks, and winding channels of the channel connecting the different parts of the lake.
