Join Murray on ALPHA’s Portuguese Painting Holiday in the Western Algarve
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 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 Praia da Luz where you can paint the coastline, fortaleza, buildings and churches. The traditional fishing village of Burgau is within a few minutes drive from Luz and has some really quaint subjects to paint including buildings, cobbled streets, boats and the beautiful coastline. We will also visit the coastal town of Lagos (15 mins away) where you can paint anything from fishing harbours with multi-coloured fishing boats, old forts, traditional Portuguese tiled buildings, churches and town squares. We will also visit Camilo where you can paint the coastline plus the stacks.
There are plenty of traditional Portuguese villages nearby as well as the mountain village of Caldas de Monchique.
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.
