    Alpha Painting Holidays (Residential)

    Holidays Coming Up...

    May 8th - 11th 2020
    The Travelling Sketchbook in Exmoor National Park

    Join Peter Woolley on The Travelling Sketchbook where we will be sketching and walking, enabling us to reach parts of Exmoor that other painting holidays cannot reach… probably!

    Each morning we will be dropped off by minibus and we will either go on a linear or a circular walk where we will walk a short distance and then spend time sketching. Lunch will be a packed lunch giving us flexibility and will be at a place where we can do more sketching. Walks will have some ups and downs, given the nature of Exmoor National Park. However, they will be more of a stroll than a route march and each section will be around a mile and we will cover around 3-4 miles by the end of the day.

    Some studio work will be included in order to produce full paintings from your sketches.


    October 14th - 21st 2020
    Paint the Amazing Light & Colour of the Western Algarve, Portugal

    Join Peter Woolley on this exciting opportunity to paint in the Western Algarve where we will paint some beautiful Portuguese scenes.

    The Algarve is well known for it's amazing light conditions and vibrant colours from the vivid blue skies and turquoise waters to it's lush green and colourful vegetation as well as the rustic tiled and coloured traditional buildings.

    The Western Algarve is more rural, rustic and peaceful than the hustle and bustle of the Central Algarve with it's sleepy harbours, quiet mountain villages and un-spoilt coastline.

    The holiday will be based at Villa Termal Das Caldas De Monchique Spa Resort, which is in the National Park of the Serra De Monchique.

    We will spend the first & last painting days at Caldas where the holiday is based as there are many painting subjects within the village and complex including traditional Portuguese architecture, cobbled streets lined with deciduous trees and dappled sunlight. There are buildings perched down the valley giving various vantage points for painting.

    We will also visit the coastal towns of Lagos and Praia Da Luz where you can paint anything from fishing harbours, old forts, traditional Portuguese tiled buildings, churches and town squares to multi-coloured fishing boats with palm trees, beaches and The Algarve Coast.

    Il Vecchio Frantoio, Terenzano, Tuscany

    Terenzano is a small, working agricultural village overlooking the Alpi Appuane mountains of Carrara in the most northern part of Tuscany. The Romans called this area Lunigiana because of the luminosity on the marble reflected by the moon. The village is about a ten minute drive from the fortified Medici town of Fivizzano; a small, lively market town running many cultural and food events during the summer months.

    Il Vecchio Frantoio, ‘The Old Olive Press’, is a collection of old agricultural buildings, reconstructed to provide a venue for small groups to get together and enjoy their common interest, such as painting, walking and creative writing amongst others. The buildings have been lovingly restored by the owners, Peter and Hilary Roberts.

    Peter Woolley has been invited to run a weeks sketching and painting holiday at the location. If you fancy joining him, to paint views of the mountains, small villages, street scenes (complete with cats), interesting old doors, water fountains, olive groves and beautiful churches, then sign up now to avoid disappointment (there is a maximum of only 6 places).

    At only £875 per person, this is an ideal opportunity to enjoy painting and drawing in a small, relaxing group, along with fine locally-produced food and wine in a stunningly beautiful location.
