She had invited a lot of the crowd that painted annually at Holt Hall together for 15 years. Her villa I have to say is amazing and was able to accommodate 10 of us. I picked up a car at Faro airport and and with Felicity navigating, off we went. It brought back fond memories of driving round France, painting with Felicity. Thelma and Louise came to mind.
Ted & Corry Kooy had already arrived and welcomed us. Our hostess had gone to the airport to meet Tom & Mary Coates. Paul, Rick & James were making their own way in a hire car.
The first day was glorious and we all decided to paint around the villa. I was drawn to this little corner
Sunny Corner 12" x 10" oil on board
Agapanthus 12" x 10" oil on board
In the afternoon I moved round to paint the tree from the other side. It was the shadows that were the big draw on this one but I couldn't resist putting Felicity in the picture.
The Red Costume 12" x 10" oil on board
A Lick of Paint 12" x 10"
High & Dry 12" x 10" oil on board
