Summary

Join Paul Weaver on this exciting opportunity to paint in an absolutely

delightful place in the Algarve.


Details

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 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 in Praia da Luz where you can paint the

coastline, fortaleza, buildings and churches. The traditional fishing village

of Burgau is within a few minutes drive from Luz and has some really

quaint subjects to paint including buildings, cobbled streets, boats and

the beautiful coastline.


We will also visit the coastal town of Lagos (15 mins away) where you

can paint anything from fishing harbours with multi-coloured fishing

boats, old forts, traditional Portuguese tiled buildings, churches and town

squares. We will also visit Camilo where you can paint the coastline plus

the stacks.


There are plenty of traditional Portuguese villages nearby as well as the

mountain village of Caldas de Monchique.



An award winning artist, enthusiastic and encouraging tutor, Paul will

combine informative lessons with plenty of on-site sketching and

painting.


He will guide you through his techniques for capturing the mood and

atmosphere of this superb location.


With instructive demonstrations and personal guidance, he will offer

advice on choosing subjects, composition and tonal sketches, as well as

techniques for capturing the atmospheric effects of light and shade,

trees, skies, water and reflections, simplifying architecture and adding

figures to a scene.
