  • Afternoons are optional. You can either continue with more complex geometrical study or paint your morning studies using  self  prepared  natural  pigments, such  as  using  camino  earths. This  will  also  be  your  opportunity  to  spend  some  quiet  time  in  nature  on  the  beautiful  Camino  de  Santiago and go for walks.
