Malta Mainland DAY 4 in 2 parts
Day4. 18th .Popeye Village……sounds crazy but it is a really lovely location to paint. This is a beautiful cove on the North coast of Malta where they filmed Popeye with Robin Williams. The set is still there & makes a perfect painting half day. In the tourist season the set is still open to Tourist & we may encounter some music & voice announcements as you would get in most theme parks only this is a very small theme park
Day4. We will be positioned high up on the cliffs of the beautiful coves of Golden Bay…,A rocky coastal cliffs with orange/yellow rocks & cliffs with watch towers & distant view of The bays & rocky sea coast.
Day5. 19thValletta with views of the coastal 3 cities harbours from the Upper Barrakka Gardens & below the Lower Barrakka Gardens & main square . We suggest that if we paint in 2 locations of Valletta, we will paint in the Gardens below in the morning & then views of the 3 cities in the afternoon. This is to avoid crowds in the main part of Valletta in the morning
Day6 20th. Marsaxlokk, a favourite with most painters. Colourful fishing port with bustling Market & bars/Restaurants along the seafront.
Day7. 21st .Mdina from the hills below with views of the town We will also have time to walk into Mdina town known as the Silent City
