Painting in Olhoa, Portugal

This time next week, I will be painting with a group in Olhoa, Portugal.   http://www.artinthealgarve.com

The school is beautiful with two lovely internal courtyards….In this photograph I am looking down into one of the courtyards through the 150 year old olive tree….

Once delivered to the School from Faro airport, just a twenty minute drive away, it is not necessary to get into a car again until departure.     The only vehicle I am happy to use during the week is the boat that takes us out to one of the lovely outer islands.

The dining area in the main school….the food is superb, all provided by Margarida a wonderful cook.

It’s one of the more conducive places I have encountered to explore the creative process…..The weather is invariably lovely but should rain come…there is a superb studio.

I am quite sure that the magical Hummingbirds will be with us all the way….as they were last year.
