Painting holidays in Alonissos, third in line after Skiathos and Skopelos (Mamma Mia fame!) is the quietest inhabited island in the Northern Sporades group. It offers many small deserted beaches with crystal clear waters, sleepy harbours with colourful fishing boats, and a rugged natural landscape with spectacular views. The island is a perfect location for a painting holiday. Although certainly not flat – there is tremendous variety of scenery from mountainous wooded slopes, a hilltop village, unspoilt ancient houses, wonderful seascape vistas, traditional working harbours and wildflower and fauna to make you want to return again and again.
Christopher Hughes left Swansea University in the 1970’s to train as a ceramic artist, he then turned freelance in 1980 after becoming one of the leading painters at Royal Worcester. Since then his watercolours, oils and ceramics have sold to galleries and collectors in the UK, Japan, USA, Australia, the Middle East and Europe.
Together with his wife Jane, he is now lucky enough to spend the summer months painting and holding watercolour painting courses from their house on the Island of Alonissos. Whilst there he works in watercolour and oils as he attempts to capture the wonderful colours and light of the Aegean.
