Paint the Amazing Light & Colour of the Algarve

Rob Dudley

16th - 23rd October 2021


Holidays Listing

Join Rob Dudley 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


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.

Rob will show you tricks for getting the

amazing effects of water, light and

reflections so you get the most from

your painting. With his enthusiastic

approach he will teach you many tips

and techniques through

demonstrations and plenty of one-to-

one teaching. He will show you how to

simplify scenes with the use of tone

and colour.
