Painting holidays in Alappuzha (Alleppey) a.k.a Venice of the East in Kerala state , India
Better Photography, a leading photography magazine has selected Alappuzha as one of the top 10 destinations for landscape photography in India.
Alappuzha/alleppey also called the Venice of the East offers many wonderful locations for 'plein air' landscape painting in oil or watercolor. So grab your art materials and rush .The houseboats riding on the backwaters and canals of alappuzha with swaying coconut trees on the banks along with lush green paddy fields offer a visual treat to the painter. The annual snake boat races is a visually spectacular event.
We sincerely hope that in due course of time Alappuzha will become an ultimate painting destination for all artists around the world like the present Venice and Tuscany in Italy.
The largest mural painting in kerala is at krishnapuram palace at kayamkulam which is in alappuzha district.
