Join Michal Jasiewicz on this exciting opportunity to paint in an absolutely

delightful place in the 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 the traditional fishing village of Burgau where

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


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.

Michal loves the spontaneity and freshness that comes with watercolours

and he will inspire you to paint exciting watercolours where he places

great emphasis of light on a subject. He loves combining the formal

shapes of architectural subjects with the freedom of much looser

expressionistic methods that demonstrate the amazing light bouncing off

buildings and in the landscape.

He will adapt his teaching style to the requirements of each individual

from beginners to the advanced painters and will give plenty of one-to-

one tuition. He will do a demonstration at each location to help you

understand his interpretation of the scene and then will help guide you

through the painting process including composition, how to depict light,

colour and tone to dramatic effect.
