Albufeira, Portugal, April 6, 2008

First complete plein air painting from our balcony overlooking the southwest coast of Portugal. It has taken me nearly one week to adjust to the light and colors over here. This late afternoon sun and pending storm front made the water and horizon both appear liquid, yet provided a soft warm glow to the sunlit foreground.

There are some interesting rocks, where locals fish with long casting rods that I plan to explore when the wind lays down. The surf here is very active and makes wonderful patterns along the expansive stretches of beach. All in all, I'd say this is a superb place to explore and paint!

We are finding that daily blogs are next to impossible and will try to do at least one or two per week, with images from paintings, as well. “Wireless” is not easily found in Portugal, especially when our travel itinerary requires more necessary stops just to paint and for food, etc.
