Join Soraya French 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 holiday will be based at

Villa Termal Das Caldas De

Monchique Spa Resort, which

is in the National Park of the

Serra De Monchique.

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.

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.
