Join Peter Woolley 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 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.


Peter will show you how to simplify the scene in front of you in order to

get a pleasing composition. He will guide you through a scene by painting

a step-by-step demonstration for those who want it in order to illustrate

the key elements of each part of the picture and how to build up the

picture. For those who wish to paint their own scene he will give

guidance to each individual according to what they require.


His approachable style of teaching will enable you to get the most out of

your paintings as he will assist you in this process. He will give you plenty

of one-to-one tuition and will demonstrate many tips and techniques

including the importance of tone and colour. Peter will work hard in order

for you to achieve your goals.
