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, 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.

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.
