Paint the Amazing Light & Colour of the Western Algarve

Michal Jasiewicz

4th - 11th October


Holidays Listing

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


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


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

bouncing off buildings and in the


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.
