Summary

Join Sarah Wimperis on this exciting opportunity to paint in the Western

Algarve where we will paint some beautiful Portuguese scenes.


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, traditional

Portuguese villages, quiet mountain villages and un-spoilt coastline.


The holiday will be based in Burgau, a beautiful traditional Portuguese

village and we will spend one day painting the village and/or coastline.

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.


We will also visit the inland villages of Pedralva, Budens, Barao Sao Joao

as well as the quiet mountain village of Caldas De Monchique which is in

the National Park of the Serra De Monchique where we can paint

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.


Sarah ensures that everyone will have a rich painting experience,

whether you are a complete beginner or a full-time artist who just wants

to try a different approach. Whilst she demonstrates her style of painting

her main objective is to tutor for each individual's needs to ensure you

develop your own style. Sarah tutors in any water based media and

when painting in oils often paints and teaches the techniques and style of

van Gogh and by using these methods you will build in confidence and

develop skills that will enhance and further your own work.
