The Other Side of the WorldI have just returned from a marvelous two weeks in Portugal with fellow artist and very good friend Julie Simmons. Travelling from Lisbon to the Algarve to Porto it was an inspiring, busy yet relaxing time.
Fellow Australians Peter Griffen and Denise Lithgow were tutors with www.artinthealgarve.com and I recommend both tutors and venue highly.
