Beautiful location for painting

Jump to last reply

Hi. I'm travelling to Japan in September / October 2016. I am an amateur painter/artist and would love to spend a week painting fantastic landscapes. Since I know nothing about the country I wonder if anyone - or many people - would suggest a good location. I don't want to travel far during that one week but am willing to go some distance to get to a good spot.. I'm happy to walk during the week between sites.. I'd like a quiet-ish place where I can sit and paint on site. I need an area that is very beautiful, has some variation in scenery, and where I can take a scene and fit it onto the canvas. A mixture of water and land is always good though beaches are often too big.. My picture needs to contain a whole feeling and site. I don't want massive wide sceneries because I can't get the essence of them into picture. Its hard to explain but its got to feel good, be interesting and beautiful.
Even if you don't get what I mean, please suggest great, beautiful places and let me know why you like them.
Thanks. Hope you can help.
