Portugal

Painting Portugal

We visited Portugal in 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2016, travelling around the country for many weeks in our Boomobile. The first time was a kind of long ‘getting acquainted’ trip, starting by the Southern Spanish border, all along the coast through the Algarve to the extreme Western Pointe de Sagres. Then all the way up along the coast through towns like Sintra, Lisbon, Peniche, and many others, with shorts trips into the interior between. Then along the Northern Spain/Portugal border and all the way down again on the Eastern side along the Spanish border, visiting many of the fabulous medieval towns and villages. The second time, in 2009 we had only 3 weeks to do it and focussed on the South-Eastern part, visiting towns such as Alcoutim, Mertola and Serpa. And early in 2012 we went for one week to the Algarve to attend some International U-17 football games, but then I had hardly time and nerves to paint!

We travelled to the Algarve again in July 2016, again to attend some football games involving our football team Derby County. We were based in Olhao, visited many places around and I had a wonderful time sketching on site.
