This is looking quite a way ahead but I'm looking forward already to going on my Spanish Painting Holiday with Sue Sareen, my friend and artist colleague.
She has been running holidays at this venue for several years now and this Andalucian finca/hotel has gone from strength to strength as a beautiful and relaxing place to paint and enjoy the wonderful mountain scenery of the nearby National Park.
Take a look for yourself. Sue has just returned from her first course this year and couldn't stop praising the place...especially the food!
I figure that late October will be just right for me. I don't like it too hot, especially when I'm trying to paint. And apparently the longer shadows at that time of year make for some wonderful compositions.
I can't think of a better way to spend a few days than with keen painters out to have a good time while enjoying wonderful Spanish scenery and hospitality. Can't wait!
