Summary

Join Paul Weaver 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, quiet

mountain villages and un-spoilt coastline.


The holiday will be based in the traditional fishing village of Burgau where

there is an abundance of painting material within walking distance of the

hotel.


We will also visit the coastal towns of Lagos (15 mins away) and Praia Da

Luz (5 mins away) 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.


There are plenty of traditional Portuguese villages nearby as well as

Cape St Vincent and the west coast within reach.




An award winning artist, enthusiastic and encouraging tutor, Paul will

combine informative lessons with plenty of on-site sketching and

painting.


He will guide you through his techniques for capturing the mood and

atmosphere of this superb location.


With instructive demonstrations and personal guidance, he will offer

advice on choosing subjects, composition and tonal sketches, as well as

techniques for capturing the atmospheric effects of light and shade,

trees, skies, water and reflections, simplifying architecture and adding

figures to a scene.
