Paint the Amazing Light & Colour of the Western Algarve

24th - 31st October 2023


Holidays Listing

Join Murray Ince on this exciting

opportunity to paint in an absolutely

delightful place in the Western Algarve

in Any Media.

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.

Murray is a firm advocate that anyone

with the desire to draw and paint has it

within them to be able to do just that,

"anyone can learn" he says. He

believes that the best work is

produced in a relaxed atmosphere

with no pressure to produce and this is

what he does through demonstrating

his tips and techniques in a relaxed and

light hearted way.

He works hard to ensure that

everyone achieves the best from their

paintings by encouraging them to paint

in their preferred style and so bringing

out the best in them. He will do this

through demonstrations and plenty of

one-to-one tuition.
