Along the Algarve coast of Portugal, there are some picturesque little villages, clinging to the hillsides of this rocky coastline. Artist Al Benge has the following comments about his artwork.
“My sketchbook was rapidly filling up as I travelled through Portugal on a recent holiday. The little port village of Ferragudo is particularly suitable for sketching, and I chose a pen and ink technique, with colour washes and splatter for texture. At the cafes on the foreshore, tasty sardines were being served, freshly caught from the boats which base their industry here.
