The Olive Grove
I just returned from spending 10 fabulous days in the south of Spain teaching a watercolor course.
It was a dream come true with good food, perfect weather, and the most amazing time painting.
We did some plein air painting, some pours, and we even painted with wine.
The resort where we stayed is in Andalusia near Villanueva de Tapia, which is about an hour north of Malaga.
We would spend a couple of days painting at the resort. Then spend a day with our cameras touring the local sites before we would repeat the cycle.
Everything was provided for us by Hilary and Mike Powell of Flavour of Spain.
Hilary arranged the tours and Mike was the chef extraordinaire, making us the most amazing Spanish tapas and meals.
All we had to worry about was what would we paint today.
