Join Arnold Lowrey 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.


Arnold will teach you the techniques to produce vibrant watercolours. He

will teach you how to use colour and light together with good composition

and design. He will concentrate on tonal value and colour shapes and the

importance of using the negative shapes to create the positive ones. He

will do this through demonstrations and one-to-one tuition and with this

balance he will enable you to improve your watercolours.
