Paint the Amazing Light & Colour of 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
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
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.
