Join Jantien Powell on this exciting opportunity to paint in an absolutely

delightful place in the Western Algarve where you will learn how to use

acrylics and pastels to illustrate the amazing light and colour of the

Western Algarve.


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 in Praia da Luz where you can paint the

coastline, fortaleza, buildings and churches. The traditional fishing village

of Burgau is within a few minutes drive from Luz and has some really

quaint subjects to paint including buildings, cobbled streets, boats and

the beautiful coastline.

We will also visit the coastal town of Lagos (15 mins away) where you

can paint anything from fishing harbours with multi-coloured fishing

boats, old forts, traditional Portuguese tiled buildings, churches and town

squares. We will also visit Camilo where you can paint the coastline plus

the stacks.

There are plenty of traditional Portuguese villages nearby as well as the

mountain village of Caldas de Monchique.

Through a mixture of full blown paintings and sketching Jantien will lead

you step-by-step through your painting with plenty of 1-2-1 tuition.

We will spend some days painting full-blown paintings on location through

step-by-step guidance.

Other days we will produce plenty of sketches around a particular

location. These sketches can be in watercolour, pen, pencil or charcoal

and can be done alongside Jantien or you can choose other subjects to

paint. Either way she will give you plenty of 1-2-1 tuition.

Then we will spend some time in the studio with any/mixed media

producing full blown paintings from the sketches produced on location


With the mixture of these 3 distinct approaches you will learn a lot of

diverse approaches from Jantien and with her friendly and approachable

style you are sure to learn a lot from her whilst having a lot of fun too.
