Portugal trip - last part

Now the British Plein Air Painters London show is over, I finally get the chance to put some time and care into my poor abandoned little blog. I have a many posts queuing to be shared with you, but before I do so over the next few months, I wanted to post the last paintings from my trip in Portugal (Algarve) earlier this year.

First painting below: we cheekily had to go under a couple of fences to access this beautiful point of view at the edge of the cliff. It was so windy!

The finished painting

Just a few meters away from it, David and I found this lovely view:

Then a small 20 minutes sketch before we had to leave:

Then after a short drive we got the chance to paint Ponte de Piedade which was a real treat to paint:

Following day - last day of the trip. In the morning the weather wasn't great so we did some lemon studies inside:

Then the sun was out so I painted in the beautiful garden of the villa:

Progress of the painting

Only 30 minutes left before we have to head to the airport. Quick... a little oil sketch of the gate at the property...
