Join Max Hale 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.

Kevin has excellent

interpersonal skills and is an

inspirational and patient


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.

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.

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.

Max loves seeing people gain knowledge, skills and motivation from his

tuition. His teaching is based on working very much with each individual

to develop their own natural style. He will demonstrate and explore ideas

at the start to establish areas you might need to be aware of. As you

paint he will give guidance, always encourage but will leave enough

space for you to be expressive and creative. He will teach technique,

method and best practice. He works with all abilities and will tailor his

teaching to suit the level of ability of each artist.
