Painting Holidays

Caldas de Monchique, Portugal

Article text
Join Kevin 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 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 at Villa Termal Das Caldas De Monchique Spa Resort, which is in the National Park of the Serra De Monchique.

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.

Kevin will be tutoring in oils, acrylics and watercolour.
