The seminar takes place Friday 30th May 2014 from 1600 to 1800 hrs, Junta de Freguesia de Monchique.

Artist Tom Compton has recorded some of the most attractive and unspoiled places massed with an unparalleled variety of late spring flowers.

His most recent paintings filled with details of the natural world are on display at Galeria Côrte-Real in Paderne where he has spent time as artist in residence.
