About

The main objective of this "Painting Portugal" project, is to travel to an inspiring destination, full of local character and an incredibly beautiful coastline.  To spend seven days painting dynamic and impressionist style watercolour sketches on beaches and coves carved from golden sandstone, full of colourful vibrant coastal life. That will then be brought back into my studio and worked up into larger watercolour original paintings, using the finest watercolour paints, brushes and paper that money can buy, for you to own and enjoy!

 Sketch traditional coastal villages and towns, lit with stunning Portuguese light and in just seven intense days, produce a body of original watercolour travel sketches, drawings and photographs that can be used to produce finished unframed original, unique studio watercolour paintings that capture that light and character, for you to own.

Painting on location is such an intense and vibrant sensory activity, that the passion in your work becomes evident , far more so than from sitting in your studio working from photographs.

I plan to work prolifically each day, rising early and finishing late. All of the sketches and studies produced on location will be used as rewards for you the backer.

If you decide that you would like to back "Painting Portugal" you will receive an opportunity to own an original piece of art, from a sketch created whilst travelling. One that you can choose from a selection of 28 travel sketches at a price that is affordable to you. All of the artwork rewards offered will be made available at a much lower cost than they would be sold for in the gallery.

 This is only available to you as a "Painting Portugal" backer.

Early Bird Reward

Receive an unframed original 5 x 3 inches original watercolour sketch on 300lb Arches watercolour paper and a set of four Steve PP watercolour postcards. Every day for the thirty days duration of this funding time period. I will paint two of these size warm up watercolour sketches of the Portuguese coast to get me inspired and in the mood for the painting trip. You can watch them being painted by following me @steveppart on Instagram.

Risks and challenges

Having worked as a professional artist for over thirty years, I am very comfortable with producing art to a high quality and standard on time.

I have allowed myself eight weeks studio time to produce all of the paintings and items outlined in the rewards that will be sent to you the backer.

Costs have been broken down realistically as I already deal in running a day to day working art studio business.

If you decide to help support me and choose a reward that fits your pocket, you can rest assured that I will deliver it to you on time.

Thank you for supporting real art.
