Watercolor by Jonathan Lowe
We arrived at Thorung Phedi before the crowds and claimed a table near the corner of the dining hall with a wide view. As the hall filled with people and their multilingual conversations, Jonathan laid out his paints, brushes and paper, and painted the snowy mountain vista.

The gray clouds moved in so fast that by the time the painting was finished, only the mountainside in the foreground was still visible from the lodge.
