Key Details

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 unspoilt 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.

Soraya is known for her loose, impressionistic, almost abstract style of painting in different media and will help you capture the light of the Algarve with her light, loose and vibrant style of painting.

She will give you plenty of one-to-one tuition, teaching the key elements of painting including catching the essence of a scene in front of you and choosing a pleasing composition with the feeling of a place with good use of colour and her distinctive style.
