Holidays Listing

Join Paul Weaver 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 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

Coast.


There are plenty of traditional

Portuguese villages nearby as well as

Cape St Vincent and the west coast

within reach.




An award winning artist, enthusiastic

and encouraging tutor, Paul will

combine informative lessons with

plenty of on-site sketching and

painting.


He will guide you through his

techniques for capturing the mood and

atmosphere of this superb location.


With instructive demonstrations and

personal guidance, he will offer advice

on choosing subjects, composition and

tonal sketches, as well as techniques

for capturing the atmospheric effects

of light and shade, trees, skies, water

and reflections, simplifying architecture

and adding figures to a scene.
