This workshop is designed for all levels of skill, from the person who wants to overcome his or her fear of painting outdoors in a nurturing and non-competitive atmosphere to the experienced artist who wants to hone their skills and learn to create more dynamic and successful paintings.

With daily demonstrations, including thumbnail sketches and value studies, you are welcome to work in the medium of your choice, but Susan will be working primarily in pastels.

With personal instruction at each easel, you’ll learn to create an interesting and well-balanced composition and get a better understanding of color, value, edges, and techniques.

Emphasis will be put on capturing the remarkable lighting of the Algarve as well as the sights and sounds you’re experiencing while actually being “in” the landscape you’re painting, rather than creating it from a photo. There is nothing more exciting or inspirational than painting while immersed in a landscape as beautiful as the coast of Portugal!

The course cost includes transfer from the airport, 7 nights full board, 6-day course as well as a mid-week excursion to the neighbouring island of Armona.
