Join Paul Talbot-Greaves on this exciting opportunity to paint in an

absolutely delightful place in 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 Caldas De Monchique where we will paint the

traditional Portuguese architecture, cobbled streets lined with deciduous

trees and dappled sunlight.

We will also visit other inland places such as the National Park of Sitio Das

Fontes with its streams, ponds and quaint buildings plus the historic city

of Silves with its castle.

We will also visit the Algarve coast and paint around places such as Lagos

Marina, Luz and the fishing village of Burgau.

With Paul you will start by sketching and taking photographs, where you

can concentrate on composition finding and absorb subjects, before

starting work on your painting. He will assist this process with either a

demonstration or quick sketches to illustrate what can be achieved

quickly. Paul likes to use a loose, rapid approach to painting, usually

completing a piece in around two hours.

Paul helps painters with their own work, giving individual tuition,

demonstrations, offering helpful and technical advice.
