Join Andy on this exciting

opportunity to paint in the

Western Algarve where we

will paint some beautiful

Portuguese scenes.

The Algarve is well known for

it's amazing light conditions

and vibrant colours from the

vivid blue skies and turquoise

waters to it's lush green and

colourful vegetation as well

as the rustic tiled and

coloured traditional buildings.

The holiday will be based at

Villa Termal Das Caldas De

Monchique Spa Resort, which

is in the National Park of the

Serra De Monchique.

The Western Algarve is more rural, rustic and peaceful than the hustle

and bustle of the Central Algarve with it's sleepy harbours, quiet

mountain villages and un-spoilt coastline.

We will spend the first & last painting days at Caldas where the holiday is

based as there are many painting subjects within the village and complex

including traditional Portuguese architecture, cobbled streets lined with

deciduous trees and dappled sunlight. There are buildings perched down

the valley giving various vantage points for painting. We will also visit the

coastal towns of Lagos and Praia Da Luz where you can paint anything

from fishing harbours, old forts, traditional Portuguese tiled buildings,

churches and town squares to multi-coloured fishing boats with palm

trees, beaches and The Algarve Coast.

Andy believes that anyone can be taught to paint if given clear and easy

instructions, and plenty of encouragement. His aim is always to

encourage and motivate others to explore their creativity, and he

teaches by demonstrations, exercises, and one-to-one mentoring. Andy

will be tutoring in oils, acrylics and watercolour.
